MAS President Kent Barwick to Receive Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Medal

kent barwick

At the Annual Benefit on November 11, with great pride and shared gratitude, MAS will present its highest honor to our President Kent Barwick who, after almost 40 years of service, steps down as president of MAS at year end.

Kent has been the soul of the Municipal Art Society for almost four decades, leading the charge to save Grand Central, Radio City Music Hall, and Lever House, stopping the creation of a massive tower that would cast shadows across Central Park, building a magnificent new Moynihan Station, preventing a rezoning of Times Square that would have eliminated its world-famous bright lights, revitalizing the waterfront, and hundreds of other projects. In short, New York is the greatest city on earth, and Kent Barwick has been its keeper.

Each year, the Municipal Art Society presents the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Medal to an individual whose work and deeds have made an outstanding contribution to the city of New York. Previous winners include, Wade F.B. Thompson and Elihu Rose, Janet and Arthur Ross, Robert De Niro, Brendan Gill, and Agnes Gund.
