175 Art People, Places and Things to Follow on Twitter

If you don’t know what Twitter is, you’ve probably never been on the Internet, but you’re somehow reading this sentence, and, well, that’s what you’d call a paradox.

Anyway, I’ve compiled a list of 175 art-related people, places and things you might want to follow on Twitter. I’m absolutely, positively sure I’ve missed a whole bunch of good folks and incorrectly categorized quite a few others. Send a message to @glasstire and I’ll get you next time around. Come on, San Antonio and El Paso. I know you’re out there.

The ordering within each group is fairly random, with superstars mixed in with regular folks, but in my heart I’ve given extra points to those who 1) are somehow related to Texas and 2) don’t just post links to their own stuff and call it a day.

Don’t be shy about posting a message to @glasstire to let me know where I’ve screwed up. This list, as should be evident to anyone who made it this far, is a work in progress, although I admit I do like the somewhat arbitrary nature of its ordering. It just seems appropriate for the beautiful mess that is Twitter.

  1. If any labels had been used, the labels themselves would become the work, and too often this is the case. More should be done to limit their impact on the viewer’s experience in all shows. Thank you, Michael, for your insight, and your well written article.

  2. Hearing Eliasson talk about his work on KERA did nothing to make me appreciate his work. Coming from a culture where you have no peers in the business makes it especially tough to find your own voice as an artist. But I do agree with your point about museum labels, or “cards” as they say in the UK. And you most certainly wrote a good article.

  3. I’ll add a parenthetical. Many thanks.

  4. Roy,
    Thanks. I’m happy to be included,

  5. Thanks so much for this useful list! The Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C. would love to be included in your “Elsewhere” list! Just follow @americanart.

  6. @DallasArtNews

    And also, looks like @ArcoftheArts does not exists any longer.

    Thanks!
