We hope you all had a wonderful Fourth of July holiday and enjoyed three (maybe four?) free days last week. It’s amazing how much more energy an extra day off can give us. After all the fireworks and BBQs we’re looking forward to a work week of interesting events to attend from our Go section. Or if you’re so inclined, laying in one of many NYC’s parks and perusing through our Reads for this week. Lastly, what better time to Apply for new opportunities than the summer and start the school year with a new job?
Psst…we’re going to take a little break over the month of July. We won’t be publishing full Arts Weekly articles, but sending shorter newsletters only. If you’re not yet subscribed to our newsletter, you can do so now and receive it straight to your inbox every Monday morning!
