Kudos to Akimbo, a great online site for Canadian art information. They’ve launched Akimbo Connects, an inspired project that produces sketch-style profiles of people in the art world across Canada. First of the once-a-week posts is Layne Hinton, co-curator of Art Spin, the bicycle led art tours through Toronto that have been such a success.
“Each profiled luminary fills out our handwritten questionnaires and this, along with photos, opens up a behind-the-scenes look at what they do best,” Akimbo says. “These impromptu portraits introduce you to people you want to know more about and their exhibitions, artist studios, classrooms, articles, collections, work spaces and more.”
