“It is rare that we have the opportunity to celebrate our own eco-system.”
– Richard Armstrong, Museum Director, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Foundation

Throughout his 40-year career Walter Hopps (1933–2005) never succumbed to administrative logic or routine. His chronic lateness and near-mythic disappearing acts prompted employees at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, D.C., where he served as director in the 1970s, to make buttons reading walter hopps will be here in 20 minutes.

The conversation will continue at walterhopps.com, log on to share stories about Walter Hopps and the other legendary curators in A Brief History of Curating, upload your button spottings to Flickr tagged “walterhopps” and join the Protest Against Forgetting at walterhopps.com.
