Guggenheim Museum will no longer accept gifts from makers of OxyContin

The group’s mission statement asks that “museums, universities, and educational institutions worldwide remove Sackler signage and publicly refuse future funding from the Sacklers.” 

Purdue Pharma started producing OxyContin, generic name oxycodone, in 1995. The drug became a billion-dollar blockbuster for the company. The Sackler family is listed as the 19th-richest in the world by Forbes at an estimated $13 billion. However, the company is now facing 1,600 lawsuits from people who abused the medication and it is trying to settle some $10 billion in claims.
