Mary Louise Schumacher is the art and architecture critic for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in Wisconsin. A decade ago, she developed Art City, a multiplatform program for the coverage of art, architecture and urban design. As experiments in social journalism go, it has stood the test of time more than most. It features a regular newspaper column, a community of contributing writers, short films, podcasts, other multimedia and live events. Schumacher has one of the largest social media followings of any arts journalist in the nation and is working on a documentary film about the lives of art critics. She is the 2017 Arts and Culture Nieman Fellow. During her fellowship year, Schumacher is studying emerging strategies within the fields of architecture and urban design for addressing issues of racial and economic inequity.
