Best New Art Blog

No snark, just art. ReadysetDC is serious about D.C. as a cultural capital, and its earnest coverage of our city’s latest developments in food, fashion, music, architecture, and art offers refreshingly unbridled enthusiasm for all the cool things one can jam into a weekend. Founded in 2009 by Justin Young, ReadysetDC hosted a launch party at the Long View Gallery in December and has rapidly expanded since. The site’s four editors have even gotten their first taste of event planning, hosting monthly blogger salons, pop-up galleries, and listening parties that bring together creative types from across many fields. ReadysetDC isn’t a site to turn to for art criticism, though—it’s a cheerleader. Nevertheless, it’s hard to resist the ReadysetDC gang’s battle cry to “Go Create,” a mandate one can never hear too often.
