WHY THE ART DIGEST IS ISSUING
THIS
SPECIAL GOLDEN GATE EXPOSITION NUMBER

CALIFORNIA CULMINATES! That, in a phrase, sums up The Art Digest's interest in this tremendous event in the West. For the past 13 years, while other American art publications ignored the news from "two-thirds" of a nation, The Art Digest carefully chronicle this activity, calmly weighed it as national news in the balancing scales of editorial judgment, and refused to localize its editorial content to the Eastern Seaboard. As late as 1936 one California critic was impelled to note that: "The Art Digest is the only art magazine that even knows there is art interest in California." The great art program at the Golden Gate Exhibition justifies these 13 years of The Art Digest's editorial judgment. The publication of this Special Number is a logical culmination - away from the East Coast The Art Digest ran ahead 10 to 1 in regular circulation; with the Golden Gate Number it will be 20 to 1. Progressive art firms know that the New York market is not enough - they are now conscious of the necessity for a national market. This Golden Gate Special Number is your golden key to the least explored market of Greater America.
