Hi, I’m Lindsey
I’m an arts writer based in Brooklyn. I’m currently the Digital Content Editor at ART21, and working towards an MS in the History of Art & Design at Pratt. In 2013 I founded an art startup in San Francisco called WanderArt, and now I’m bringing that project’s editorial vision to ArtAround, a web and iOS app for finding and sharing art outside. ArtAround is a nonprofit fiscally sponsored by the Gray Area Foundation for the Arts, and in my free time I work as the project’s executive director.
In 2012 I graduated from New York University graduate with a BA in Journalism and Art History, and a very random minor in Mathematics. In the past I’ve worked as a reporter for the Academy of Art University, an editor for Artsia, an international online gallery, and I’ve freelanced as an arts and culture writer for places like Art Nerd, Rooms Magazine, and Artfetch. I’ve also written for Huffington Post’s Good News and Small Business sections, Artscope Magazine in New England, and artcollector magazine in Switzerland.
My blog, things worth describing, is where I share my academic papers and write about art I love. It started when I studied abroad in London in 2011 and was too broke to do anything but wander around the city’s incredible free museums.
Not only do creative works deserve appreciation, they also deserve context – I believe the arts can teach tolerance in a world too caught up in its own ideas of what should be. Wanna collaborate? Email me. Thanks for stopping by!
