art writers? anyone?
It is hard to pin point the root of the slow art economy. Sure blame Michigan's highest rate of unemployment or the lack of art funding in Detroit. Blame Kwame. Blame those suburban rich folks who jet set to NY and LA to buy art instead of supporting their home grown artists. Blame the lack of art critism? Yes, let's look at the lack of art writing in the detroit community. Ok, so metro times has broadened there art writing and Joe Bernard did get mentioned in the back of Art in America's reviews, but where is art critism in the free press? Maybe if there was more art review people would start to see detroit as a "cool art city" and maybe venture out of their fancy townhouses to check out this art scene that is worth writing about.
