Sam Chase, a regular volunteer for the group Art Not Oil, wrote an excellent article for Artinfo detailing his opinion of British Petroleum’s 10 million pound donation to British museums. Liberate Tate Blog feels the same way. These organizations are protesting with some eye-catching performances to convince museums to reject this gift from BP.
