We have a brand new site for arts coverage and now I have a brand new outlet for sharing thoughts on what's going on in our active arts community.
This space on arts.heraldtribune.com could be considered "in development." I'm not quite sure what it's going to be, or how it's going to look, but you have to start somewhere.
I have been blogging for several years, but it's been mostly news items, reviews and feature stories. Now I have a space to express opinions on all sorts of things without waiting for my Sunday Arts column, Behind the Scenes. That Sunday column will be posted in this part of the theater page each week, and I'll be adding other thoughts as events warrant and time allows. And some of those thoughts may wind up being expanded into a Sunday column, so it could all come full circle.
And as the Ringling International Arts Festival gets underway, I'm sure I'm going to have a lot to say about the various performances and events, even those that I'm not officially "reviewing."
But it's not just about my thoughts. I want to hear your ideas, comments, suggestions or reactions to whatever you read in this space or anywhere on artssarasota. We want to hear from you. So please post your comments below, or contact me at t email@example.com.
