new blog, new arts center

Pierre Ruhe and Catherine Fox, formerly arts critics for the long-suffering AJC, have banded together with some of their colleagues and launched artscriticATL.com, which aims to fill the gaping holes in arts coverage left by the AJC buyouts. The blog went live May 26 and just yesterday garnered a mention on New Yorker critic Alex Ross's acclaimed blog, The Rest is Noise.

Today at 3 p.m., Pierre and Catherine will be on the inside of an invitation-only event at the Woodruff Arts Center where the new master plan -- to include, I hope, a shiny new hall for the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra -- will be revealed. They'll be live-blogging the meeting, so if you want to be the first to know, click over to artscriticATL.com this afternoon for all the latest news.
