If so, you’re in luck. This Sunday morning on WBEZ’s Hello Beautiful!, host Edward Lifson discusses how the internet is affecting art with three people using technology to impact the art world. Taking a seat at his roundtable are Cultural Affairs’ Barbara Koenen, who brings local artists together through Chicago Artists Resource; architecture expert Lynn Becker; and arts blogger Terry Teachout, who’s based in New York but checks in with her Chicago friend from time to time.

The show promises a new angle on the media’s obsession with the internets, plus they’ll be taking your calls. Think of it as an on-air comments section about those arty blogging bloggers.

Hello Beautiful! airs on WBEZ Sunday at 10am.
