Any user can now keep up to date on ArtSlant artists, curators, writers, arts orgs, etc.
Add any artist or art professional profile to your Watchlist, and you can get updates whenever they add work, an exhibit, reviews, blogs or comments. Your Watchlist stream is easily accessed through your My Page Hub.

Registered ArtSlant Users - only registered ArtSlant users will be able to see your watchlist.
Only You - you will be the only person able to see your watchlist on your profile page.
