Hi Upnorth: My bad. I forgot Gary Hill. I didn't know about Dennis Evans. Thank you for telling me! And Josiah -- he didn't live here in 2000, I don't think, did he? I hear you, though.
Now I'm going to the local donut shop.

@2: Please start a blog of writing about art. Then send a link to your blog. Then we will all know how to do it right. Problem solved.
commented on No Answers from Artist Trust on Demographic Diversity, and How I Act on a Panel
Lila: "however, we feel that the information we gave to The Stranger has not been accurately represented. In our open application process, we do not collect demographic information about applicants’ gender. Applications are and should remain confidential."
What I wrote: "Rankin agreed in principle, and said these historical demographics have caused a change at Artist Trust in recent years. Artist Trust has begun to collect demographic data in the last few years, she added.
'We have started to try to think about issues of [demographic] diversity,' Rankin continued. 'We have changed, and are trying to keep more [information] about that. We've always simply asked artists to submit their applications and we've not historically, until the past few years, asked artists to submit a gender in their application.'
This morning, Hurwitz said Rankin had gotten that wrong, and that the Arts Innovator Award applications do not collect gender data. Hurwitz said she was too busy to continue the conversation today."
Can you please be more specific about my misrepresentation?
From an email you sent me on September 25: "We’re pulling together the 2013 applicants’ gender info but it likely won’t be ready until tomorrow."
From an email you sent me on October 1: "Margit unfortunately was mistaken when she spoke with you last week (I blame her jet lag; it wasn’t anything more nefarious than that); she thought we collected applicants’ gender, when we don’t. Hard to know absolutely everything when you’re the ED. I apologize on her behalf for that mistake."
Help?? I try to understand what comes out of your offices, and I truly struggle. I think I characterized pretty fairly and accurately here.
