CALL HIM DOCTOR DOCTOR DOCTOR
Apr. 1, 2011

"You can call me Doctor Doctor Doctor," joked New York magazine art critic Jerry Saltz. Next month, Saltz receives an honorary doctorate of fine arts from the Kansas City Art Institute. He is also delivering the commencement address at the KCAI graduation ceremony, which takes place on May 14, 2011.

It's the third honorary degree for Saltz, who hastens to note that he is otherwise without a diploma. "I ask them to make me a cardiologist," he wrote in an email. "Or a proctologist."

Saltz is not the only critic winning kudos this spring. New Yorker art critic Peter Schjeldahl is receiving an honorary Ph.D. in fine arts from the College for Creative Studies in Detroit -- his second honorary degree.

Saltz adds that his wife, New York Times art critic Roberta Smith, has two honorary degrees as well.
