This year, The New Criterion celebrates its thirty-fifth anniversary. The work of the magazine remains as urgent as ever. While culture and art have sunk into disarray—carrying most critical journals along with the tide—The New Criterion has stood firm, holding up the greatest achievements of art, philosophy, and literature, past and present.
In this turbulent political and social climate, the work of The New Criterion is not only important — it is necessary. The New Criterion is a measured and reasoned voice held above so much static and noise. We have our community of ardent readers to thank; a passionate group of high-minded individuals who have rallied behind our mission for more than three-and-a-half decades. Thanks to your donations, our online initiatives have born fruit. We have gained more subscribers than ever before and The New Criterion now reaches more than 100,000 people every month. The Friends and Young Friends of The New Criterion enjoyed many events and conferences, including art gallery tours, lectures by prominent speakers, book releases, and more.
