The Arts Fuse serves as the next generation platform for thousands of arts and culture consumers across Greater Boston and beyond. The magazine now draws more than 100, 000 readers a month.
The Arts Fuse was born in June 2007, and with each year it has increased the breath and depth of its coverage of arts and culture across Greater Boston andNew England, posting in-depth criticism, previews, interviews, and commentary covering theater, music, dance, visual arts, and film. With an archive over 8,000 articles, The Arts Fuse serves as the next generation platform for thousands of arts and culture consumers across Greater Boston and beyond. The magazine now draws more than 100, 000 unique visitors a month.
Alarmed by declining arts coverage in newspapers, magazines, radio, and television, Editor-in-Chief Bill Marx launched The Arts Fuse as a non-profit magazine that would be a home to professional online arts criticism. The publication would also search for innovative ways evolve cultural conversation and debate, to find ways to bring together critics, readers, and artists.
The Arts Fuse now has more than 60 contributing writers, critics, and editors across New England and beyond. Veteran contributors to The Boston Globe, The Boston Phoenix, and other national publications as well as promising young reviewers are part of the team.
We are pioneering a new business model for arts journalism. But we need your support: to maintain editorial quality, to assist our mentorship program of young critics, and to expand our readership. We are a vital part of today’s cultural ecology: this is cultural journalism that matters because it nurtures the kind of dialogue that bolsters a thriving artistic landscape.
