In this issue, for the fourth year running, we present a special section on art. Overseen by James Panero (about whom more in the next note), our December issues have become an opportunity for The New Criterion to step back and add to its usual coverage of art a passel of articles on some of the larger issues bedeviling (and illuminating) the art world today. In the past, readers have responded warmly to these more concentrated overviews of the art world as they have to our special sections on poetry, overseen by David Yezzi (about whom, too, see below), in April. This year, we think, we have an especially vigorous group of essays: we hope you agree!
