This post is the requisite throat clearing and introduction for The NY Culture Vulture, a haphazard blog dedicated to the fine and performing arts in NYC and its environs.
As a publicist for cultural institutions, I spend my days convincing people that ----- Museum has a hot exhibition going up and that ----- Magazine should talk about it.* By and large, I enjoy that endeavor, but it's also vaguely frustrating. I'd like to have a voice in the cultural conversation (even if only my friends hear it). Thus, this blog is born.
*Don't worry, there won't be any I-shouldn't-be-appointed-to-a-cabinet-level-position impropriety; I promise I won't write about institutions represented by my company.
