It struck us as odd the first time we saw 15 Bytes used as a reference source (in a Master’s Thesis we came across in the mid naughts); but it really shouldn’t have, since we’ve become the main source for information on Utah art. Now we see references and quotes from our articles all over the place. Artists frequently use our articles on their sites (note to artists: we prefer you use an exceprt and link to the original article, but if you’re going to include the whole article on your site make sure there is an active link to www.15bytes.com), and we’ve found references to 15 Bytes on wikipedia pages, magazine articles and even in books.
Recently, Come & Listen, a website that serves as “an audio portal into Jewish culture, history and religion”used portions of Sarah Moyer’s artist profile of Beth Krensky (see our May 2011 edition) for the artists post on its website.
15 Bytes isn’t the only source for information and commentary on Utah art, of course. And every week we try to give you links to articles that have appeared in other outlets in a section we call Mixed Media. Here are this weeks finds, courtesy of Terrece Beesley.
