New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's administration is asking museums and cultural institutions about the racial and ethnic diversity of their entire staffs — and if they don’t answer, they’ll be cut off from taxpayer cash.

Nearly 1,000 organizations were asked to fill out a survey detailing the race, gender and disability status of their employees and board members.

The survey is being paid for with more than $150,000 in private funds from the Ford Foundation, the Mertz Gilmore Foundation and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.

Critics say those funds could be used more productively in the arts community on new exhibits or educational programs.
