NY Times Revamps Arts Coverage

In print and online.

The New York Times will debut revamped arts coverage in print and online starting December 9.

Changes to the print section include a cleaner, more streamlined layout; themed pages once a week—Tuesdays (theater), Wednesdays (dance), Thursdays (pop music) and Saturdays (classical music); and online elements like Watching and Critic’s Picks.

Additions to online coverage include Instagram features, 360° videos of performances, personal recs from Times critics and more.

“I am delighted to introduce our redesigned arts report,” said Times culture editor Danielle Mattoon, in an announcement. “Whether you’re reading us in print or online, we’re all living in a digital world. Today’s changes are about helping our readers navigate the chaos of choice they face every day.”
