The Art You Missed will be a weekly, 15-25 minute, audio podcast exploring artists that have been lost in some way.(Podcast Link)

Here is a little more about it...

The Art You Missed explores, freely and with an open mind, acts of creation that are in danger of being overlooked amidst the ever-widening stream of the world’s new art.  Making art is an act of innovation, and from the moment the first human told a story or scratched a design on a cliff wall, artists have expressed their visions, bringing to life things imagined.  We celebrate these inspirations, and the world they enrich.  And we should.

The Art You Missed embraces the artistic impulse and adds this premise: all art is forever new.  This is so not only for art we know well, but even more so for art that, for whatever reason, we have not yet discovered or embraced.  From Homer through last month’s local sculpture exhibit, art we only just now encounter can give us the familiar feeling of wonder we have in the presence of all artistic creation.  New and unfamiliar works of art are, as Reynolds Price might say, things themselves – worthwhile creations that warrant our attention.  And they are also ways to understand, often from startlingly new perspectives, art we think we already know.  We are sure to hear our favorite music, or see our favorite paintings, or view our favorite movies, differently when we know more about their forebears and their sources of inspiration.

The Art You Missed is not merely an academic or historical exercise, but is rather an active meditation on the permanent revolutionary impulse at the core of art.  We offer you an open-ended invitation to consider and reflect, to embrace or reject, and finally, regardless of your judgment, not to miss what we will make available to you here.

We hope you will take us up on this invitation and do so by helping us get started. With the funds we collect we hope to buy some basic equipment to allow us to do this at a high quality on a frequent basis. 

Thank you!

Fritz & Sam
