With the latest redesign of the Living/Arts section we have an even broader canvas on which to display those stories, engage people in new ways, and inspire conversation.

The Boston Globe launched today the new Living/Arts section – a daily broadsheet section focusing on arts, culture, entertainment, and lifestyle. Previously the "g" section, Living/Arts is now bigger and bolder with a fresh design and collection of new compelling features and columns.

The Living/Arts section will include the Globe’s award-winning coverage of arts and culture, as well as family, events, books, style, restaurants, and nightlife, among other new features, in an engaging and eye-catching package.

The new section will revolve around daily themes, Monday through Saturday:

•MondayFamily: Features include family-oriented articles, new parenting and pet columns, reviews of children’s books, home design and a quiz for kids.

•TuesdayStories: In-depth lifestyle profiles, book reviews and a new book-advice column, along with photo essays and “Clickworthy,” which will highlight noteworthy apps, websites, and viral videos.

•WednesdayFood: Restaurants, recipes, food trends and more, including a new column by acclaimed Boston Chef Gordon Hamersley.

•ThursdayScene: Nightlife, style and society pieces, featuring a night out with a celebrity column, a behind the bar column and chef interviews.

•Weekend: Expanded Friday coverage of movies, performance, visual art and events, including a new culture column by Ty Burr.

•SaturdayLife: Lifestyle features on wellness, fitness, nutrition, stress management, and technology, as well as the popular “Love Letters” column.

The expanded Sunday Arts section, launched in 2013, will also continue to provide 20-plus pages of arts and lifestyle content.

“Readers of the Globe have a great appreciation for arts and culture and a keen interest in the many stories that this region has to tell. With the latest redesign of the Living/Arts section we have an even broader canvas on which to display those stories, engage people in new ways, and inspire conversation,” said Boston Globe Deputy Managing Editor for Features Janice Page.

The new section also offers newly added premium advertising positions.

The Living/Arts launch serves as the latest example of the Globe’s unwavering commitment to providing depth of information and perspective on a variety of coverage areas. Its new Business, Capital (politics) and Address (real estate) sections are the most recent examples. For more information, please visit
