@Gene - Artists', gallerists', and art critics' influence in urban development has accounted for a more positive effect than somebody/anybody else's in St. Petersburg - something Tampa sorely needs.
If there is anything that reality demands it's that the Bay area does well to include the creative community in its urban planning.
Got to see this exhibit at the recent FEAST event at the MFA - amazing! Women have been embarrassingly underrepresented in area museums. Sweenys' doing a great job of diversifying those exhibited - about time. And great job CL for pointing out their effort.
To be fair, Creative Pinellas does do some of its own funding - they do have $500 micro funding grants. And while that isn't as much as many traditional arts councils, they offer it much more often than other councils do.
Great piece about Bearden. Also glad you mentioned the TMoA's season - they've seriously been killing it lately
JoEllen's been great. When I was organizing a zinefest I knew I could count on her and the Globe for help.
That's right - I'm tired of the beach scenes. I get it: we live in Florida. This show was very cool. A pleasant change. Not to mention that the previous Degas exhibit was really boring. I understand he's a big name w/ the impressionists. He's still boring.
