ArtsATL is thrilled to announce a partnership with ArtsNash, a lively online publication that covers the arts in Nashville. Starting this month, we’ll post occasional stories that spotlight art exhibitions, concerts and theatrical performances in the Tennessee capital and its environs. ArtsNash will do likewise with selected stories of ours.
We’re doing this to inform readers who might want to attend an event in Music City, USA — just up the interstate from Atlanta — or simply keep abreast of what’s going on there. The arrangement will also give Atlanta artists, institutions and our writers more regional exposure.
John Pitcher and Evans Donnell, who founded ArtsNash last year, are experienced critics and journalists. Pitcher’s byline has appeared in The Washington Post, The Rochester (N.Y.) Democrat and Chronicle and Nashville Scene and on National Public Radio’s “Performance Today” and ArtNowNashville.com, among others. He earned a master’s degree from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism. Donnell, who has written for The Tennessean, ArtNowNashville.com, The Sondheim Review and Back Stage, has received fellowships from the National Critics Institute at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Columbia University School of Journalism.
We are especially proud of this partnership because ArtsATL was the model and inspiration for ArtsNash. We believe that our two sites suggest a viable, alternative future for arts journalism in America.
