Art and tobacco

August 02, 2003

THE article on the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's Pushkin exhibit ("Pride of Pushkin," by Christopher Knight, July 26) left out one dirty little secret: that Los Angeles County has partnered with tobacco giant Altria Group Inc. to put on this exhibit.

Altria is nothing more than the new name of the Philip Morris Co., a company responsible for the deaths of millions of Americans. How in good conscience can the county and its museum of art partner with this "industry of death"?
