Hello From City Paper’s New Arts Editor

Hi, Arts Desk readers!

I’m Christina Cauterucci, City Paper’s new arts editor and, as of today, the host of this blog.


My first foray into the arts, circa 1993

As a longtime supporter of alt media and the creativity that thrives in this city, I’m excited to bring new ideas and insight (and a little bit of sass) to the paper’s arts coverage.

One of the greatest privileges of working in journalism is traveling backstage, behind the curtain, into conversations and domains hidden to most crowds, to get a deeper perspective on the people and places that shape the art we consume. I want this to be the first blog you turn to for a peek into those worlds—for breaking news, smart criticism, topics ignored by mainstream outlets, and a fresh look at what makes the D.C. arts scene tick.

I have big plans for my first few weeks on the job, and I’d love to hear from you as I get started. What gets your attention? What’s missing from local arts coverage? How can we do better? Shoot me a message at or find me on Twitter. I'll be listening.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for
    only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
