LA Weekly Dumps Art Critic Doug Harvey

Regular freelance contributor Doug Harvey learned last week that the LA Weekly would no longer be a home for his writing. During his 13 years as an art critic for the paper, Harvey made significant contributions to the city’s arts coverage – and hopefully he will continue to do so elsewhere.

We’re not clear why the LA Weekly said farewell to Mr. Harvey, but it’s likely related to last month’s firing of Senior Features Editor Tom Christie, who edited the Arts section. As for whether the LA Weekly will be cutting down on arts coverage, or if they simply expect Christie’s replacement to bring in all new people, it’s a wait-and-see.
