March Newsletter Announcement


As promised, our second free issue of the March Arts Express Newsletter is here and people have been saying nice things about us.

“That Arts Express newsletter is so remarkably beautiful and brilliant and fascinating and clever and well done!”

“Looks great. You have all been very busy. I was very pleased to read the review of Parasite. I wholeheartedly agree!”

If you didn’t catch our inaugural issue, think of it as a print extension of the conversation started on our global radio arts magazine, Arts Express, heard on WBAI 99.5 FM in NYC,, and Pacifica affiliates across the country, in Paris, Beijing, and Berlin.

Every month, it’s full color pages of Arts Express goodness, filled with fascinating interviews, reviews, scripts of our radio drama, photo features, gossip, film, theatre, book recommendations and more.

Here’s a preview of what’s in our March issue:

* An interview with Canadian-Iranian actor Cas Anvar, who talks about his anti-Mossad film, The Operative.

*An extraordinary portfolio of photographs of the work of artist Alexandra Dillon, a surrealistic painter who creates art on found objects.
