Randy Kennedy’s long look at the criticism mounting against 59-year-old MoMA Director Glenn Lowry. The story ends with the museum director re-affirming the institution’s policy:
Mr. Lowry said the experience of watching the museum turn the corner into a new millennium “still feels like a dream,” and that he has no intention of leaving anytime soon.
“I’m a hyper-anxious person by demeanor, so I’m always restless and anxious, and I try to compensate for that by breathing in and breathing out as calmly as I can,” he said, smiling wryly. “But we have a policy of senior staff at this institution retiring at or around 65, and I don’t intend to break that policy. I’ll do my best between now and then.”
