For about the past three months we here at ART AT BAY, joined by new contributors, have been working hard on a new project. This January ART AT BAY the blog will be joined by ART AT BAY magazine – a print quarterly.
The magazine is really a natural progression of our original mission: we want ART AT BAY to be a catalyst to conversation and ultimately encourage serious thought on art in Tampa Bay. A magazine format seems to suit that goal well. We wanted a format you could get comfortable with and take your time enjoying. We wanted a format that befits the serious thought and attention we know our readers already give contemporary art. This magazine was made with you in mind and I hope you feel that way when you read it.
We’re very excited. Personally, I’m crazy excited. The talented contributors, the fascinating subjects of their articles, and everyone’s hard work has given ART AT BAY magazine the beginning I hoped for and an awesome foundation for a promising year. However, it’s really your help that has made ART AT BAY possible and the main reason I’m so excited.
ART AT BAY Issue 1.1 is just about done and ready to print! There will be many more details through the next week, so please stick with us as we get ready to kick off this exciting project.
