A Special Lecture

When: Thu., Feb. 16 2017

Internationally acclaimed writer and cultural critic Kurt Andersen visits the Cleveland Institute of Art today at 7 p.m. for a special lecture on art and design and their role in contemporary culture. Andersen graduated magna cum laude from Harvard College, where he was the editor of the infamous Lampoon. He also received an honorary doctorate from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2005. New York Magazine named him one of the “100 People Who Changed New York,” and Forbes listed him as one of the “25 Most Influential Liberals in the US Media.” Beginning his career at TIME as an award-winning writer of politics and criminal justice, he later became the magazine’s design and architecture critic. He has written for numerous publications, including The New Yorker, The New York Times and New York Magazine. In addition to his journalism and novels, Andersen also writes for film, television and the stage. The lecture is free, but seats must be reserved.
