Classroom Meets Gallery
New York Times
At the Yale University Art Gallery, a sunny new fourth-floor gallery was filled recently with a collection of artworks highly unlikely ever to meet in such proximity again. What thread could possibly unite these works? Not a purely curatorial one, of course, but a thread that wends its way through the often wonderfully murky territory where art appreciation meets education. The room, the Levin Study Gallery, is given over to professors—from art history but also from African American studies, South Asian studies, and gender and sexuality studies, among others—who choose pieces from Yale's vast collection to serve as teaching tools.

Publishers and Library Groups Spar in Appeal to Ruling on Electronic Course Reserves
Chronicle of Higher Education
Fair use and electronic course reserves are back in court.

One surprise motion came from the United States Department of Justice, which requested more time to consider filing an amicus brief either in support of the publishers or in support of neither party.

An Art Installation Made of the Cable News Crawl
Fast Company
We're constantly inundated with news. Just look at your Twitter feed. We hop from North Korea to Top Chef to productivity tips without a second's thought. But it's strange, if you really think about it, that we process the world's news as indiscriminately as sticking our fingers into every dish on a buffet. And That's the Way It Is explores this idea of media inundation. By Ben Rubin, it's a media installation at the University of Texas that scans closed-captioned chirons during the nightly news and projects those hot topics onto a building.

Major Art Museum Group Bolsters Rules for Acquiring Ancient Art
Los Angeles Times
The ethics for adding ancient works to American art museum collections became substantially more stringent five years ago when the Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD) decided to set the bar higher—prompted by complaints from Italy, Greece, and other ancient lands that museums had long turned a blind eye to evidence that pieces they owned had been looted from archaeological sites. Last month, the group announced a few more subtle tweaks to those guidelines, including requiring a public explanation on the AAMD's website if a museum decides to acquire a piece despite gaps in its ownership record going back to fall 1970.

A New Way Forward
Wall Street Journal
While some American art museums receive some government support, most depend on three main sources of money: (1) earned income from admissions, retail, restaurants, and the like; (2) revenue drawn from their endowments; and (3) annual contributions, which too often provide the largest part. In lean times, those donations tend to drop or level off—forcing cuts in staff, programming, and other costs or, sometimes, an increase in debt—and if Washington ever caps the tax-deductibility of charitable donations, as many politicians want, it will make matters worse.

Curator, Tear Down These Walls
New York Times
A modest proposal for this country's great repositories of pre–twentieth-century American art: why don't you, as Diana Vreeland might have asked, mix folk art in with the more realistic, academically correct kind that has so dominated museums since the nineteenth century? Despite rising interest in and scholarship about folk art—and even after the wholesale rethinking of several major American wings on the East Coast—the isolation of folk from academic is still the norm.
