It’s been difficult for the Art Review writers and editors to maintain full schedules of academics, rehearsals, and writing. We feel very strongly that it’s important to provide reviews of Harvard student work done by students themselves involved in the arts at Harvard. But rehearsals get in the way, a show takes over your life–as shows at Harvard do–and the publication has trouble staying afloat.
The Art Review will be taking some time this year to regroup, reflect, and figure out how to best fulfill our original mission and support, feed back to, and celebrate student work in the arts at Harvard. There will be few or no regular reviews this year, but in the meantime we are working with the Office for the Arts and the Freshman Arts Board to provide more complete, student-friendly guides to the arts here–formal and informal. We will be spotlighting a few groups, and if you have an idea for an art project that you want to get students together for, we’re still your advocates and publicists. Get in touch with us at harvard.artreview [at] gmail.com, or with me, HAR’s editor-in-chief, at katiebanks17 [at] gmail.com I look forward to seeing what you’re up to, and to helping you however the Art Review can.
