About Art Practical
Since its inception in October 2009, the online art journal Art Practical has provided comprehensive analysis of events and exhibitions in the San Francisco Bay Area. The website choreographs a partnership of independent chroniclers of contemporary art that creates visibility for artists and art making to the broadest possible audience.
Art Practical produces bi-weekly issues that include critical reviews, essays, serial writing, interviews, and an open forum intended for community participation. In addition, they produce a daily list of exhibition openings, events, lectures, and performances; news feed of relevant activities, applications, and events; and an editorial list of "picks," which are events or exhibitions that Art Practical's contributors feel should not be missed. For more information about Art Practical visit artpractical.com.
