A New Arts Educator: CriticCar Detroit
On the day when Detroit area citizens voted for a new millage to sustain critical funding for exhibits and educational programs at one of the city's greatest treasures, The Detroit Institute of Arts, we talked with cultural journalist Jennifer Conlin, founder and editor of CriticCar Detroit--a creative project in itself--designed to sustain the arts via breaking and on-the-scene audience reporting and reviews of the city's cultural events.
We think CriticCar Detroit is in a unique position to contribute to arts education in Detroit. Not only can it serve to expand the arts and broaden their reach in the city. CriticCar Detroit has the potential to quickly become a new cultural tradition on its own.
