ArtsPOST publishes reviews of live theater and music concerts, movies, exhibits and other arts events in and around the Washington Metro area. The site highlights the work of graduate and undergraduate students in an American University course titled: The Arts: Selected Topics in Media Criticism.

From January through April 2010, students will explore various ways to assess, analyze and critique several of the arts, including movies, television, music, theater and books. With field trips through the Washington area to movie theaters, stage theaters, concert halls and museums, they will watch dramas, visit exhibitions, interact with arts officials, critics and artists, and gain a deeper impression of the process of creation and its public realization.

Their writing and some of the events they will be attending will be showcased here. You’ll also find more information on the professor as well as links to American University’s School of Communication.
