Texas's Glasstire takes top Nat'l Summit on Arts Journalism Prize

Congrats to Texas's homegrown Glasstire, and founder Rainey Knudson -- National Arts Journalism Program members and alumni of the National Endowment for the Arts' Arts Journalism Institutes awarded it the top, $7,500 prize in a national survey of initiatives. Finalists were featured at the summit earlier this month. Interactive digital magazine FLYP took second, and San Francisco Classical Voice takes home $2,500 for third. Glasstire is powered primarily by artists and curators, including SA's own Ben Judson (an occasional Current contributor and a co-founder of emvergeoning.com) and video collective The Prime Eights.

Go Glasstire!
