Dallas arts writer (and sometime Glasstire contributor) Darryl Ratcliff blogged yesterday for CentralTrak’s Canvassing that : “The Whole Arts World Is Totally Fucked. And Everyone’s Talking About Arts Criticism?

Responding to Glasstire’s Christina Rees recent article on crowdsourced curating at museums, Ratcliff argues that museums aren’t necessarily to blame: wacky, populist curatorial strategies are symptoms of a larger campaign against creativity in general.

Bringing in the Newly released W.A.G.E. guidelines, Robert Boyd’s blog about them, and spiraling art-school tuition, Ratcliff says the end is near, just in time for Halloween!
