In a sad week, it was a bright spot for me to appear on The Brian Lehrer Show (WNYC) this morning to discuss my essay "What's a Museum?" Brian was a joy to talk to and his listeners did not disappoint. It was also an honor to take note of the passing of Hilton Kramer, founding editor of The New Criterion and friend who wrote so forcefully and perceptively about museum matters, among many other topics, decades before anyone else.
Great comments and questions came in to the studio on air (full switchboard) and online (50 and counting). The segment is now available for streaming and free download. Readers/listeners can continue the discussion on the show's comments page and at The New Criterion.
