Thursday, September 29: The Art Critic

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Utah has a rich and well-established arts community, and an integral part of that is the art critic. His or her role, however, can be imagined in a number of ways. Is it the job of the critic to foster the arts or is his responsibility to the arts consumer? Doug Fabrizio talks to dance critic Marcia Siegel, NPR's film critic Bob Mondello, the Salt Lake Tribune's Sean Means, and Art Theory Professor Lane Relyea of Northwestern University.

  • Repertory Dance Theatre is hosting an in-depth dance writing and criticism workshop with Marcia Siegel, Saturday, October 1 from 10 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center. For information on the workshop or on RDT's concert Touchstone, call 801-534-1000.
