A Letter Of Farewell To Our Readers
Dear IRAAA+ Readers,
The Hampton University Museum and its publications unit would like to extend our heartfelt thanks for your interest and steadfastness as readers of our online zine in recent years. The vision for the zine has always been to act as a complement to our primary print publication, The International Review of African American Art (IRAAA). In this regard, the zine has met its original intent artfully with many exhibition notices, reviews, articles and other materials to enlighten readers about visual culture and to serve as an adjunct to the scholarly or critical offerings regularly published by Hampton University Museum with IRAAA.
We would like to offer special thanks to former (now retired) IRAAA editor, Juliette Harris, who took the founding and ongoing publication of our online IRAAA+ web zine on as a consultant in 2013.
We began phasing out regular postings to the online zine during the last quarter of 2016. With the start of 2017, we will no longer continue with online publication of the zine. After a thorough assessment of existing operations and analytics for the online publication, and in consideration of the future vision and goals for Hampton University Museum operations and publications, our new museum director, Vanessa Thaxton-Ward, has determined that maximizing staff focus and resources on the HU flagship print publication, IRAAA, is our most efficient and effective course ahead.
We hope that you will remain or become a reader of the print International Review of African American Art (IRAAA) in the years ahead. Subscriptions and back order are available through the Hampton University Museum store at http://museum.hampton.edu/store/
