Somehow the holidays have arrived and with that at last, a slower rhythm is starting to pulse through the arts scene. Our Around Town feature reflects that wind-down so we stuffed our Reads and Feeds section with a little extra love to get you through your holiday travels and awkward dinner conversations. Hear how the art world is handling the rampant wave of sexual harassment and gender discrimination flooding the country and then brush up on the public monument debate ahead of next week’s public hearings. With so much social unrest, change is on the cusp - stay informed, active, and try not to make a scene at the Thanksgiving table when that one uncle starts ranting. For The Hunt, we heard y’all loud and clear at our workshop last week - we have a round-up of Development and Marketing jobs and some tips on how to write that Thank You letter, even if it wasn’t an official interview. Trot full speed ahead, Turkeys!
