About Us

New York Arts Review was created in the Summer of 2014 as a place for in-depth writing about the various fine arts disciplines that flourish in New York.  Unfettered by  content limits or advertising influence, New York Arts Review hopes to provide a fresh voice – with an insider’s perspective – in its analyses and criticism.  Our mission is thoughtful, objective and passionate writing that celebrates and supports the arts.
