Art — Produced by Michael O’Reilly
The Artblog is 10 years old this year and Libby Rosof and Roberta Fallon are celebrating. In 2003, when “blogging” (a compound word derived from “web log”) was not that well-known, Libby and Roberta started diverting their artistic energies from art making to art criticism. They saw a burgeoning art scene on the fringes of the Philadelphia art scene and yet no one in the mainstream media seemed to be covering it. Instead of printing something on their own, or writing for the already established media outlets, they chose to establish their own electronic “non-paper” presence. Join us as we follow Libby and Roberta as they tour alternative art on a cold and snowy First Friday, remarking on art and trends and meeting and re-meeting artists along the way.
