ALL ARTS responds to Emily Johnson’s January 22 letter to Montclair State University

ALL ARTS prides itself on our fierce advocacy for the arts and artists. When confronted with problematic situations involving any institution, artist or artwork that we support, we must take action. Our artists and audiences expect nothing less.

ALL ARTS has been working with the PEAK Performances program at MSU. It has been a productive collaboration, presenting a diverse array of artists and artistic expression on ALL ARTS’ multi-platform media channels.

Recently, the artist Emily Johnson published a letter, containing serious allegations against MSU, PEAK Performances and its Executive Director. On Monday, Feb. 8, ALL ARTS notified MSU that we would not continue working with them moving forward. Out of respect for the artists who are scheduled to appear in the remaining two episodes of the current PEAK HD season, we will air and stream these episodes as planned.

ALL ARTS was created to enrich lives through the transformative power of art. We reaffirm our commitment to artists, to art-making and to our art-loving viewers.
