This morning MinnPost arts writer Max Sparber bid farewell to the Twin Cities. The playwright has been writing “Max About Town” for the online news organization for just over a year, but is leaving the Twin Cities for Hollywood.
According to MinnPost’s Susan Albright, beginning Jan. 19, Pamela Espeland will broaden her writing for MinnPost, launching a “newsy, twice-weekly arts column that will focus on arts institutions, personalities, performances, money and arts politics.”
In addition, ‘man about town’ Andy Sturdevant will begin writing for MinnPost on Wednesdays a column called “The Stroll.” Albright describes the column this way:
In it he’ll describe interesting, newsworthy or otherwise notable visual art-related objects or events around the Twin Cities, with each piece focused on one geographic area — a part of town, a neighborhood, or even a few blocks within a neighborhood.
He’ll draw readers’ attention not only to traditional works of visual art contained within this geographic area, but also to craft, architecture, design, street art, public art, advertising, fashion, or furniture design — anything a person could walk by and have a look at. Each column will include a hand-drawn map.
Sturdevant’s column will launch January 25.
