To the Editor:

For the record, the Museum of Contemporary Art has four full-time curators [Culture Club, February 6]. To suggest that I am the only full-time curator at the MCA and that all the others are part-timers is inaccurate and denies my colleagues the credit they so richly deserve.

Acting Chief Curator

Lewis Lazare replies:

I apologize for the confusion. What I meant to say was that the MCA has only one full-time employee with the title of curator; the three other curators are associate curators.
