Talk and Book Signing
Loretta Spencer Hall
Glenn D. Lowry, friend and museum colleague of Executive Director Christopher J. Madkour will join us for a special evening in April! Glenn is just the sixth director of The Museum of Modern Art in New York. Leading a staff of over 750, he continues the museum’s legacy of enriching public life through exhibitions, educational programs, publications and digital tools that challenge conventional ideas about modern and contemporary art and design. His initiatives bring MoMA’s renowned collection and research to audiences worldwide.
Glenn lectures and writes in support of contemporary art, on the role of museums in society, and on other topics related to his research interests. He is a member of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation’s Board of Trustees, a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, a member of the steering committee for the Aga Khan Award for Architecture, and a resident member of the American Philosophical Society. He also serves on the advisory council of the Department of Art History and Archaeology at Columbia University. In 2004, the French government honored Glenn with the title of Officer dans l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. We are pleased to invite Artist’s Circle and Benefactor Members to attend for free.
