Artweek, RIP

The Bay Area art magazine Artweek has gone out of business after nearly 40 years of publication. The final issue was dated June 2009. From the website:

A victim of changing times and huge economic challenges, we deeply regret that we are unable to fulfill subscription or calendar terms and will not be issuing refunds.

We are grateful to all those who have been a part of Artweek over the years, including our loyal subscribers and advertisers and the many writers that have contributed to the magazine.

Founder Cecile McCann died in Oakland on July 2, at the age of 91.
