There is a new place to experience the arts in Broward County! ArtsBlog, available through Artscalendar.com, now shares blogs from a number of local arts writers who are penning their perspectives on the Broward County arts scene.
Seventeen writers were selected through the Broward Cultural Division's Broward Arts Journalism Alliance (BAJA) program, and Arts Blog is one of a few literary products resulting from the program. In these next steps toward developing and nurturing a pool of local arts writers, BAJA aims to keep arts news' coverage alive and vibrant through the words of writers who will now make Broward County's arts and culture, their 'Beat.'
For example, read Rachel Galvin's thoughts on artist Nate Dee's latest mural, Feathers of Hope, for Broward 100, located on the Edgar P. Mills Center's outside wall or dabble into the Spooky History of Fort Lauderdale by Ali Berger. Learn about the first ever African Wardrobe Festival as experienced by blogger Judy Pokras and smile with the friendly faces of aviation in Michelle de Carion's latest Inside Out Broward County coverage. Browse blogs about exhibitions, murals for the Hallandale Bridge and the County's centennial finale Duende; all available through these arts writer's words and images.
Visit ArtsCalendar.com regularly to check out the changing arts scene, read reviews about past events, previews about upcoming and ongoing stories and share with the bloggers through posts on their experiences out in the field of Broward County arts!
