Do you have March 14th circled on your calendar? That's the date for UnderMain's Critical Mass IV, to be held at Lexington's 21C Museum Hotel and featuring Great Meadows Foundation's Critic-in-Residence Kóan Jeff Baysa. The event is free and open to the public. Details coming soon!

We are trying to grow our eyeball numbers. Help us out by letting others know about UnderMain and about signing up for our biweekly UMGram newsletter on our website. Look for a refreshed website design in 2020.

UMRadio will have some new interview pieces about Infinite Industries and Critical Mass IV in the near future on WEKU's Eastern Standard, a weekly radio magazine hosted by our own Tom Martin. Eastern Standard is broadcast three times a week, twice on Thursdays and once on Sundays.

BTW, gloomy and cold February is a great month to visit museums, galleries, and other presenting venues in the region. We can all help grow the arts and culture scene in the region by patronizing these places.
