Ten years is a longtime for a web-based project and Newsgrist is celebrating a decade of existence this month.
Created by artist and online maven Joy Garnett, she considers Newsgrist as “a kind of artist’s journal. It happens online, and it predates blogs, and I imagine that it can and will adapt to whatever vehicles crop up.”
What is Newsgrist? It is a compilation of links and information of interest to those in the arts. In other words, before art blogs existed there was Newsgrist.
I spoke with Garnett about her online project and how it has evolved since its inception. She assured me that, “after all these years [it] remains as close to my heart as ever.”
