Art Animal MagazineCategory: Magazines-Newsletters
Duration of Position: 3 months
Art Animal is a magazine that publishes a delicious sampling of women’s off-kilter art every week. Our mission is to inspire pride and interest in the works of women, while entertaining our readership with witty articles about unusual local events and people. Neither “sassy” nor “man-hater” describes what our magazine is about. We do not give dating advice or complain about our boyfriends. Our magazine is limited to—or, rather, filled with—amazing projects thought up by women because, frankly, we just don’t see enough of it. There is plenty of wonderful work being done by women in the world that is often overlooked. We’re here to turn the spotlight toward them.
To get a better feel of what we publish, please visit our new website:
