Roberta Smith is the senior art critic for the New York Times; her husband, Jerry Saltz, is the senior art critic for New York magazine. They stride across the art world like colossi or perhaps colusses, depending on your preference – astute, eloquent, wedded colussi. They joined us for a rare joint appearance on stage at the New York Academy of Art. With bluegrass music.
