We’re gradually trying to make “Sites to See” a useful one-stop navigation tool for anyone interested in arts coverage in major American newspapers. Take a look at the right-hand column and you’ll find direct links to arts and book sections and pages in the New York Times, the New York Observer, the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, the Boston Globe, and the Baltimore Sun.
Conspicuously missing from this roster, alas, are the Los Angeles Times, which segregates all of its arts and book coverage behind a pay-only firewall, and Terry’s own Wall Street Journal, which is very restrictive in the cultural coverage it makes available for free on the Web. We hope these papers change their mind, and if they do, we’ll let you know.
We’re interested in linking to the Web sites of other newspapers which offer serious arts coverage that might be of interest to readers elsewhere. Keep us posted.
In addition, we’ve also reorganized “Sites to See” into four separate categories for greater ease of use. From the top down, they are:
(1) Blogs and personal Web sites primarily about the arts (though they may touch on non-art-related subjects from time to time)
(2) Art-related non-blogs and informational sites
(3) Art-related newspaper sections and magazine sites
(4) Interesting blogs and Web sites not primarily about the arts (though they may touch on art-related subjects from time to time)
We hope you find all these changes helpful. If not, say so.
