Dear Colossal readers,
We’re interrupting your regularly scheduled stream of art and visual culture to say thank you. Colossal turned 13 last month, and as we pass this milestone, we’re reflecting on how independent arts publishing has changed over the years. What began as a personal blog in 2010 has grown into a healthy arts publication covering creativity and natural beauty from every reach of the planet with several contributing writers and millions of monthly readers.
In the first half of 2023, we published more than 400 articles, held six conversations with world-renowned artists like Amy Sherald and Christoph Niemann, hosted five workshops with creatives from around the globe, and curated an exhibition at the Design Museum of Chicago. We’re so grateful to do the work we do, and none of it would be possible without your support, particularly that of Colossal Members who are the lifeblood of this publication. So thank you. Thank you for reading, for learning with us, and for reminding us each day that art is essential.
To celebrate, we’re giving away a fun, art-filled weekend in Chicago! Become a Colossal Member before Friday, September 15, and you’ll automatically be entered to win the following:
All new Colossal Members will also receive a one-time discount for BLICK Art Materials and all of the popular perks like an ad-free reading experience, access to our Workshop Library, and an exclusive monthly newsletter with news, early registration, and plenty of giveaways.
No matter your level of support, we’re so glad you’re out there reading.
—Christopher, Grace, Kate, and Jackie
