Carol Vogel and Adam Weinberg
Carol Vogel, one of New York Times' veteran arts writers focusing on art news and market reportage, has accepted a buyout from the paper. More info on ArtNet here.
As I'm sure you have probably read, the Times is offering voluntary buyouts and for those of us who have been here a while, it's a good deal. So after much soul-searching I have decided to take management up on the offer and resign. (I am joining quite a list of well-known bylines.)
I still plan to write and work on some projects I have been wanting to pursue for ages but never had the time because writing for a daily newspaper is all-consuming. It's exciting to finally take a leap into the unknown and to see what other opportunities arise.
The question on everyone's mind: Why couldn't it be Ken Johnson?
