Andy thanks Amy, congratulations!


Congratulations to PORT's Amy Bernstein, one of this years' Warhol Foundation Arts Writer's Grant program winners. Amy always brings incredible depth, poetic sensitivity and an admirable sense of responsibility to her reviews and interviews, which you can check out here. To get a sense of her work, here is her impressive interview with Okwui Enwezor and her most recent review of Broadcast at Lewis and Clark College.

She could have transcribed just a couple thousand words of the Enwezor interview but I remember discussing it with her and she felt very strongly that he really had something to say and should be able to say it in full detail. That's what Amy brings. It is amusing though that PORT doesn't qualify as a blog ...but it's telling too.

Congratulations also to two other area writers, John Motley and the Stranger's Jen Graves... arts writing is often difficult, thankless and rarely pays much. I know about a third of the grantees and it is an impressive group, looks like Creative Time has made adjustment from the experience of previous cycles.
