Hello Dear Readers of artshiftsanjose.com,
It is with regret that the Advisory Board of ARTSHIFT announces the end of our online coverage of the visual arts in Silicon Valley. Our endeavor of four years, a labor of love, has been staffed entirely by volunteers and as we know, all good things have a natural life span. We continue to believe strongly that the stories of artists and artwork in this geographic region have a great importance and much to contribute to the development and history of art. We salute, the great faculty and students of Silicon Valley’s art schools, the dedicated museums and galleries, the Zero1 festival and all the imaginative individual artists that make up this community. We especially want to thank all the wonderful and supportive individuals who have written for AFTSHIFT and those who have contributed funds to the ARTSHIFT AWARDS.
Hopefully, it will not be long before another online journal takes up the mission to report on the visual arts news of this area. In the meantime, ARTSHIFT’s archives will remain accessible online.
Best of luck to all!
ARTSHIFT’s Advisory Board
