There is so much more to say about this issue. As an SF native, I have been a patron and supporter of Intersection for the Arts for a long time. I recently published a news story on the online arts publication Hyperallergic. If you would like to join the conversation, please feel free to leave a comment on the Hyperallergic site or consider joining the open group on Facebook called After Intersection. I wish I could say “enjoy” this write-up, but it’s more to share the news on a national platform and help spread the word about how we as a community can better support and keep apprised of our beloved grassroots arts organizations. Thanks so much for reading. Please share widely.

  1. To hear you speak is on my (important) list of Things To Do. As per admonition, Lil Sis, I’m going to Hoot it out (I haven’t quite gotten the command of Social Media yet. Otherwise, this would be all over the place.🙂
