writing in street

My review of the Russell Crotty show at the Miami Art Museum will come out today in Street (which, in case you don't know, is the entertainment weekly put out by the Miami Herald). An editor has indicated that this will be the first of an ongoing collaboration, a happy-sounding thing about which I am awaiting details. The editor assigned to my story was insightful and a pleasure to work with.
The paper will hit newstands today and is as free as the wind blows. I will be checking compulsively throughout the day for the appearance of my essay on the Street website and will provide a link
when I have one right here.

I read the review, Franklin. Nice try, but I'm skeptical (imagine that). The photo of a piece illustrating the review was not encouraging. The fact Crotty can't be bothered to ensure the text he incorporates into his work is free of misspellings doesn't help, either. I can see how the cosmic angle would appeal to you, but I'm a little less ethereal.

Hey Franklin, that's a nice, concise article about RC's beautiful work! I think your representation of MAM is a little off, but I suspect that it's because the shows you are more critical of may have stuck in your head more than others (what about Puryear, Marden, Liebowitz, Cowles Photography Collection, etc.?) unless of course you were referring to the New Works series only when you said "showcase" . . . :)
Anyway, congrats on the Street thing!

Congratulations! I'm happy to see that Street is picking up the slack after the departure of the previous arts writer. Hopefully it won't hinder content here.
