Friends Annual Mary Pitcairn Keating Lecture | Art Museums on the Verge: Christopher Knight

Christopher Knight, art critic for the Los Angeles Times, will deliver this year’s annual Mary Pitcairn Keating Lecture. Museums have always been under stress, Knight argues—but never more than they are today. Knight offers a bird’s-eye view of where museums are now, why, and where they might be headed. Introduced by Museum Director James Steward. Reception to follow. 

The 2020 winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Criticism, Knight was also a finalist for the award in 1991, 2001, and 2007. Prior to joining the Times in 1989, he served as assistant director for public information at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (1979–80) and as curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego (1976–79).
