Kelly Klaasmeyer has been named one of six distinguished mid-career arts journalists selected as Fellows for the USC Annenberg/Getty Arts Journalism Program. With support from the Getty Foundation, the program, now in its eighth year, seeks to establish a new standard of excellence in arts and culture coverage. “These Fellows are more interested in what the art they are covering makes us think than they are in telling us what they think about the art,” said Sasha Anawalt, director of arts journalism programs at USC Annenberg.
