ArtsJournal was founded September 13, 1999 in the heady days of the dotcom boom. The site is a digest of some of the best arts and cultural journalism in the English-speaking world. Each day ArtsJournal features link to stories culled from more than 200 English-language newspapers, magazines and publications featuring writing about arts and culture. Stories from sites that charge for access are excluded (though there seem to be fewer and fewer of pay-access sites).
The current AJ site is the fourth design. In 2003 we added blogs and the site now features more than a dozen prominent writers on culture. We expect to keep adding to the number with individuals, group and limited-time group debate blogs.
