The Arts Paper is a dedicated team of writers, freelancers and collaborators who believe that community-based reporting isn't just a job.

It's a way of life. 




Lucy is a lapsed art historian who loves wordplay almost as much as community building. Prior to her time at The Arts Paper she was a reporter at the New Haven Independent and station manager at WNHH Community Radio, where she still produces and hosts Kitchen Sync, a show about food and New Haven.
