Support Hyperallergic’s independent arts journalism.
Starting Wednesday, July 6, Hyperallergic will be heading to the land of Creoles and Cajuns for two weeks by Lake Pontchartrain.
During the period, we’ll be handing over the reins of the publication to guest editor John D’Addario, who is a veteran blogger (since 1996), adjunct professor of arts administration at the University of New Orleans, professional arts educator, photographer and man of the world. You’re in for a treat!
Also, during that period Paddy Johnson of Art Fag City will be writing weekly articles on new media and there will be lots of others in the online cocktail (it is New Orleans, after all) of artistic discontent.
