This summer, the New York Times has been publishing critical essays from various artistic disciplines alongside stories from readers. Next week, they will publish Holland Cotter’s essay on what inspired him to become an art critic for the Times. Here is their plea for submissions from folks who work in any field of the visual arts:
Whether you’re a painter, a sculptor, a gallery owner, a curator, an art teacher, an administrator for an arts organization, a museum security guard or any other professional in the visual arts, we want to hear about the works of art or related experiences that led you to dedicate yourself to the field.
There’s no official deadline, but the end of this week (Friday) would be a very good guess. Keep it to 250 words or less. Represent! Get writing and good luck!
