I want to take a moment to highlight the 11 year anniversary for Joe Patti’s excellent culture blog, Butts In The Seats; Musings on Practical Solutions For Arts Management. I was enormously pleased when Joe decided to include his blog among the Inside The Arts ranks and with more than 1,600 posts it is one of the longest running culture blogs around.
Year 11 has been one of not only deserved growth but Joe has garnered an equally warranted amount of attention including being listed by Barry Hessenius 2014’s Top 50 Most Powerful and Influential People in the Nonprofit Arts (USA) and his 15 Favorite Nonprofit Arts Blogs. Add to that, the always sharp Thomas Cott has been including more and more of Joe’s posts in a number of You’ve Cott Mail newsletters.
If that wasn’t enough, he’s also a regular contributor at ArtsHacker.com where several of his posts are among the most site’s most frequently visited so you aren’t already familiar with Joe’s blog, stop by and set aside a meaningful amount of time to go through everything Butts In The Seats has to offer.
