A "wake" was held for Baltimore’s defunct arts magazine, Link: A Critical Arts Journal in Baltimore and the World (1996-2006). For ten years or so, Link was a preeminent authority on the subject of "" you guessed it "" arts in Baltimore and the World. Notable contributors to the publication included Yoko Ono, in the final issue.
Out of respect for the deceased, presumably, no mention was made of the cause of death. A cautionary sermon, therefore, was conspicuously absent.
Link is gone, may it rest in peace, but the spirit behind the publication lives on. Tonight the torch was passed to a new publication in Baltimore, Locus Art Magazine. Locus has already published a fifth issue, and was named the 2008 best art magazine by Baltimore Magazine.
