I recently got to work for the Sketchbook section on NYT, one of my favorites! It is a standalone, print-only art spot on page 3 of the newspaper. It's totally art-driven and responds to "current events." There's no article attached to it, but runs alongside a small blurb.
This one was on Cynthia Nixon's run for governor of New York. Nixon is best known as an actress who played Miranda in the television show "Sex and the City," but she also has a well-documented history of public education advocacy. Our focus of interest was that her celebrity is discussed to the exclusion of her platform and history of political organizing.
Much thanks to AD Andrew Sondern for the awesome gig!!
