, some activists, including Goldin, blocked the entrance to the building. Goldin and fellow PAIN activists were arrested after about an hour of protesting. They chanted “Cuomo lies, people die!” as they were loaded into a police vehicle.
Goldin and PAIN have been credited with driving the conversation to hold art institutions responsible for accepting money from the Sackler family.
