BALTIMORE--Holland Cotter, the 2011 commencement speaker who will also receive an Honorary Degree of Humane Letters, is an art critic at The New York Times where he won the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Criticism for coverage that included articles on art in China. For the Times, he has written widely about "non-Western" art and culture. In the 1990s, he introduced readers to a broad range of Asian contemporary art as the first wave of new art from China was building and breaking. He helped bring contemporary art from India to the attention of a Western audience. He previously worked at Art in America, Art News and New York Arts Journal. Cotter is working on a study of contemporary Indian art and a poetry manuscript.
