NYFA Current Needs $, Wendell Berry, Hildur
I'm writing to let you know that NYFA Current -- a magazine I've freelanced for in the past -- is in financial trouble. Because of the economic crunch, the publication badly needs donations if it's going to continue in 2010.
As you undoubtedly know, NYFA Current (New York Foundation for the Arts' online arts magazine) provides a crucial perspective on art and the creative process. Editor Suzan Sherman's official plea letter is here, and I don't have much to add...except to reiterate that Current's voice is a unique one, and not one we can afford to lose -- especially now, when so many are redefining what it means to make art, and looking for new ways to disseminate and write about those changes.
Please consider making a small donation (by mail or online), and / or posting the link ( http://www.nyfa.org/nyfa_current_detail.asp?id &fid=1&curidy0 ) to your networks and websites. Your support is sincerely appreciated.
