After almost a decade as a branch of the Promontory Artists Association, the Looking Closer website is launching itself out from under its non-profit status and establishing itself as an independent Web site.

What this means to you is that you’ll never have to type out promontoryartists.org/lookingcloser again.

It’s now as simple as this: lookingcloser.org.

Currently, that address points you to the same Web site that’s been live all these years. But in a few weeks, the site will be its own entity, cleaned up, and improved.

Am I excited? Oh yeah. But right now I’m knee-deep in paperwork, learning about the delicate art of moving a Web site and taking the reins.

The folks at Promontory have been relentlessly supportive from Day One, and Looking Closer is what it is largely due to their encouragement and provision. I’m eternally grateful.

    I can’t quite put my finger on it, but there’s something that definitely grates on me about Staub’s repeated use of the term ‘Jedi Christian.’
