L.A. Times Axes Arts Reporter

The Los Angeles Times' dismissal of arts reporter Jori Finkel has raised eybrows and ire in the Southern California visual arts community.  Finkel, who has been with the Times for 3 years, received her notice June 28 as part of staff cutbacks as the paper is offered for sale by its parent Tribune Company.  Fifteen SoCal museum directors, including James Cuno, Jeffrey Deitch, Michael Govan, and Ann Philbin, sent a letter to Times editor Davan Maharaj protesting the paper's elimination of arts reporting.  The letter, attached to an online petition, can be seen here.
