Art Blogs — A New Addition to the Culture Blogs Family

      We now serve you 25 art/visual art blogs, all of which have also been fold­ed into a larg­er list of 100+ cul­ture blogs. We’re now call­ing it The Big List of Cul­ture Blogs (pret­ty cre­ative, eh), and we’ll add to it over time.

As always, please email us and let us know if we’re miss­ing some­thing essen­tial.

  • Absolute Art Blog: A sta­ble of versed blog­gers who look at a spec­trum of art-relat­ed themes.

  • Art Law Blog: Title kind of sums it up.
  • Art News Blog: The blog digs up new sto­ries, reviews, guides, and arti­cles found online and shares them each day. Sto­ries have an inter­na­tion­al focus with an empha­sis on the visu­al arts.

  • Cronaca: A com­pi­la­tion of news con­cern­ing art, arche­ol­o­gy, his­to­ry, and what­ev­er else catch­es the chronicler’s eye, with the odd bit of opin­ion and com­men­tary thrown in.

  • Eye Lev­el: A blog pro­duced by the Smith­son­ian Amer­i­can Art Muse­um, it uses the museum’s col­lec­tion as a touch­stone and is ded­i­cat­ed to Amer­i­can art and the ways in which the nation’s art reflects its his­to­ry and cul­ture. Sur­pris­ing­ly, one of the few blogs to come out of the muse­um world.

  • The Art Life: Fea­tures a lengthy art site blogroll. Look down the right hand side and you’ll see what I mean.
