11/29/2005: "Art in Alaska"
I've been wanting to do this for awhile, but this week I'm actually going to get started on it. I've decided to publish a new online art magazine called (see mock-up at: Art in Alaska). We have a couple art publications in the state already but most are very Anchorage-centric. I see this as a chance for art students, artists, etc. all over the state to send in artist interviews, call for entries, reviews, announcements, etc. I'm not sure what kind of response I'm going to get but I'm emailing several art professors to possibly hang a flyer near the art lockers, or even to ask their students to go to an opening and write a response to the work for an extra credit point or something.
I'll figure it out as I go along. I want to launch the 1st issue in Jan. 06. If I don't get any submissions before then I'll just start writing it myself. I'm going to go to the big First Friday here in Juneau and take notes, get permission to take some photos, etc. just in case. I know quite a few artists in the state already so hopefully I can sucker a few people into helping me out with this.
