Although critics Cathy Fox and Pierre Ruhe have left their former home at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, they are establishing new roots at the blog, artscriticATL. The two will be publishing reviews, features, and news about theater, music, visual arts, and dance in the Atlanta community.
As we here at Burn Away also believe, Fox writes:
We believe that thoughtful criticism is a key component of a vibrant arts community, not only as an important link between art and its audience but also as a platform for debate and dialogue. Both Pierre and I continue to contribute reviews and features to the AJC, but we feel — and your expressions of concern suggest you share this view — that metro Atlanta needs more.
