Culturegrrl, trying to buck herself up after not getting the call for Art in America's blogger interview feature, notes that "I'm willing to bet that none of those other bloggers has ever been the subject of an Arkansas newspaper editorial." Perhaps not, but sorry, Lee: when it comes to stirring up defensive Razorback writers, you weren't the first.
My gripe with AiA is the usual one: as Lee politely puts it, its website never links to its articles. Which is another way of saying that their internet presence, like so many other art magazines, stinks, even when (as in this case) the most interested audience for a particular article will be found online. It's especially incomprehensible when all of their articles eventually wind up on FindArticles, if without images or original formatting. You'd think they might want to put a little more into their own website and reap some of the benefit, but apparently not. While I'm interested in seeing the piece, I think I'll make a point of not paying for a copy of the magazine to do so.
