This is a very interesting article on Artsy about where art is really happening these days.
I think this is true, about factory jobs & unions.
This would have been a long way to travel, even when I was in Brooklyn, but it looks neat and the fact that they serve La Colombe coffee is all the reason you need to stop by if you’re in the area. (Holy crap, you can subscribe to get their coffee beans delivered to you weekly. Ultimate marvelous, delicious bourgeoisie luxury.)
Late-career artists you may never have heard of, from NYTimes.
A mid-career artist whose NewMu show I’d loooove to see.
Both turrible and hilarious.
Cleveland is big in the news lately, no?

Great advice for artists.
Having left New York City in the past year, I’ve been especially attuned to people I know and know of going to new cities from NYC. First, before me, was my grad school classmate & pal, Christina Vassallo leaving NYC and Flux Factory for Spaces Cleveland a couple years ago. Now, another Brooklynite is leaving, for Philadelphia. My former coworker (via Art in General) Andria Hickey leaves NYC and the Public Art Fund for Cleveland – this time to the MOCA. Cleveland folks – go see the Mark Mothersbaugh* show when it opens. I caught the Contemporary Austin version last month and really enjoyed it!
New to Waco, but already coming from Texas are some Baylor Museums people – Alison Chew Syltie came to the Martin Museum of Art from Corsicana, where she was previously at Navarro College’s Pearce Museum. The Mayborn Museum welcomed a new director around the same time, Charles Walter from San Antonio’s DoSeum.
Speaking of migrations – is there any news from DMA about who will replace Max Anderson?
*fun fact: I walked down the aisle to a Mark Mothersbaugh composition – from Royal Tenenbaums – at my wedding.
