one problem i have with the Michigan Artist Directory is that is essentially a "pay to play" directory. you have to fork over at least $40 to be listed. there's something missing from a community when individual artists (who should be spending money on art supplies or food) and non-profit groups (like us) don't sign up because of fees. why not make it free (which would greatly increase web traffic) and add a sidebar ad to cover your overhead - dialogue would increase between educators, artists and other organizations, galleries would get more visitors (business would increase), artists would get more exposure, and "MAD" would get all the credit.9/24/2004 12:39:02 PM

This also means that anyone with $40 can be a member. Not to be elitist, but that sort of criterion does not ensure that the best art in Michigan is being represented.9/27/2004 12:05:56 AM

What I mean to say is that good art comes from all income levels, not just those that can pay to be represented.9/29/2004 1:22:37 AM
