Old City and Artblog in USA Today

We at Artblog are accustomed to receiving random emails asking for help contacting artists or locating art by artists we’ve written about (thank you Google, Yahoo and other search engines: We love you). We try to help out and see that as part of our mission.

But last month when we were in Pittsburgh covering the Carnegie International, we got something new, a query from a journalist at USA Today looking for advice on Philadelphia’s Old City. Gene Sloan, USA Today writer was working on an arts round-up feature for his paper’s travel section. He was featuring Old City as well as arts districts in Kansas City, MO and Portland, OR. By the way, Sloan told us he was an Artblog reader, bless his soul. We helped him out and asked if he could run a link to us. The story’s up today. Read here. We’re thrilled to see the great Philadelphia art scene get the credit it deserves and we’re thrilled with our link in the nationally-circulated paper.
