ArtsATL was founded in 2009 to provide comprehensive coverage of the arts in metro Atlanta and has grown to become an essential part of the city’s arts community.
Our cofounders, Catherine Fox and Pierre Ruhe, were leading critics for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution when the paper significantly pulled back on its arts coverage. Fox and Ruhe created ArtsATL to fill that void, and to ensure that there was a place for thoughtful and sophisticated criticism along with news and feature stories. They knew that journalistic coverage is essential to a thriving arts community.
ArtsATL has sections devoted to Art+Design, Theater, Music, Dance, Film+TV, Books and our Arts Calendar. We strive to be the most authoritative voice for the arts in Atlanta and to serve as the conduit between the artist and their audiences.
We are a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit and depend on donations to supplement our advertising revenue. Please consider supporting our mission.
