The New England Journal of Aesthetic Research (Blog)
The New England Journal of Aesthetic Research
is dedicated to original reporting and analysis, providing news, reviews, and a comprehensive guide of the local New England art scene. Greg Cook broke the story of the rash of gallery closings in Boston last year; his story on the plan to close the Rose Art Museum by Brandeis University was praised by other art publications.
