Arts organizations are tweeting. Arts organizations are facebooking. Arts organizations are inviting you to post reviews on their sites. Arts organizations are asking you to participate in surveys. Arts organizations seem to be trying every way to reach out to you.

But when is the line crossed from informative into annoyance? When does all the ancillary info --  the marketing messages, the rehearsal footage, the backstage photos, the author interviews -- get in the way of the experience itself?

From the blogroll, Chad Bauman of Arena Stage chimes in on the subject here. I'd like to hear your thoughts.

As an arts journalist, I have ongoing communications with Indy's artistic folks, so my perspective is different on this. So I'm asking you: Do you find yourself missing events because you didn't know about them? How are Indy arts organizations doing at reaching out and connecting to you?

Your thoughts?
