Dallas — It's no secret that arts coverage in the media has been on the decline in recent years. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram, for instance, is just one of many national daily newspapers that have completely dropped reviews of, and rarely writes features about, the performing and visual arts in the city it's supposed to cover.

Dallas' Sammons Center for the Arts is hosting a panel discussion on this issue. The Journalism and the Arts panel includes yours truly, editor of this website and president of the new non-profit, Metropolitan Arts Media, which now runs TheaterJones and the forthcoming ContextDFW (which will cover visual art in North Texas). Joining me on the panel will be Anne Bothwell of KERA/Art&Seek; and Lauren Smart, a critic and professor at Southern Methodist University who teachs an arts journalism class. The panel will be moderated by Chris Heinbaugh of AT&T Performing Arts Center.

The event is 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27 at Sammons Center for the Arts, 3630 Harry Hines Blvd., Dallas. It's free, but an RSVP is required: Email email RSVP@sammonsartcenter.org.

Below is the news release with more information:

 

The Sammons Center for the Arts, 3630 Harry Hines Boulevard in Dallas, presents a free reception and panel discussion on Thursday, September 27, 2018, as part of its 30th anniversary celebration. The event begins at 7:00 p.m. with a reception to thank local journalists who cover the arts, followed by a panel discussion entitled “Keeping the Muse in the News.” Focusing on how journalists and arts groups can work together more effectively during a time of great changes in newsrooms, communications technology and consumer habits, the panel includes Anne Bothwell, VP Arts, KERA; Mark Lowry, Co-founder and Editor, TheaterJones.com; and Lauren Smart, Professor of Practice, Southern Methodist University. Chris Heinbaugh, VP of External Affairs, AT&T Performing Arts Center, is the moderator.

“We are pleased to host this event as one way to fulfill our mission to 'Grow the Arts' in Dallas,” said Joanna St. Angelo, Sammons Enterprises Executive Director. “We are committed to ensuring that the arts are accessible to everyone. Journalists are our partners in realizing that vision.”

Free valet parking is provided. Seating is limited; reservations are required. For reservations, email RSVP@sammonsartcenter.org. Please include the name(s) of anyone who will attend with you. For more information, contact the Sammons Center at 214-520-7788.
