Many thanks to all those who came out to hear me at UW Milwaukee on Thursday and Friday. My hosts at the Peck School of the Arts were most kind. I was delighted to meet Tom Strini, writer and editor at the online arts hub Third Coast Digest. In my talk, I sounded a somewhat pessimistic tone about the fate of arts criticism, given the hostile attitude of so many newspapers and periodicals around the country, but Third Coast Digest, like ArtsATL in Atlanta and the Arts Desk in the UK, is suggesting an alternative future. Unfortunately, I couldn't stay around to hear Timothy Andres's new work Comfort Food, which Present Music plays this afternoon.
