Members Voices now in ARTSblog.

Back in September a request went out to the Americans for the Arts membership looking for volunteers to share their thoughts on ARTSblog year round. I am happy to introduce you to twelve members that will be blogging a couple times a month on arts issues of concern to them, their organizations, and their community.  Of course you are invited and encouraged to comment, question, and otherwise interact with them and the greater arts community on those issues.

The bloggers range from those that have their own blogs, which you may be familiar with, to those that have never blogged before. We have tried to get a good mix of art forms, for profit, non profit, consultant, various parts of the country, etc.  All have a passion for the arts of course, and want to share that passion with all of you.

So without further ado, here are the twelve. You can begin looking for their postings as early as next week.
