CAA Comment on George Bellows Painting Sold by Randolph College
CAA News
CAA endorses the deaccessioning policies of AAM and AAMD, which mandate that once a museum approves the serious step of a sale of works from its holdings, those proceeds be put toward the collection and not toward institutional operating costs. The recent sale of the George Bellows painting Men of the Docks from the Maier Museum at Randolph College violates these principles.

Art vs. Endowment
Inside Higher Ed
More than six years after announcing plans to sell a masterpiece of American painting—the 1912 work Men of the Docks by George Bellows—Randolph College has done so, gaining $25.5 million for its endowment. In selling the painting, the college disregarded the policies of several art and museum groups, which state that museums (including those run by colleges) should sell art only to buy more art, not to improve their finances.

Lessons of California's Droit de Suite Debacle

The debate over a national droit de suite in the United States is back, as Congressman Jerrold Nadler from New York is advancing a revised version of his Equity for Visual Artists Act of 2011, which failed to become law the first time around. When American supporters of resale royalties seek to advance their arguments, they usually look to other countries for supporting evidence, such as France, while overlooking the California act.

Women Really Don't Ask
Research Centered
Like many research centers, my center offers travel awards to graduate students and postdocs to help cover their expenses when presenting at conferences. The typical award is $500, which is often enough to cover travel to conferences in the region. Because my center is very well funded, we don't really have an official limit to how much someone can request or be awarded. Yet the only people who had requested the full amount to cover their expensive trips were male graduate students.

Help Desk: Performance Anxiety
Daily Serving
I am not trained as a visual artist—I hold my graduate degree in dance choreography and before that worked primarily in live theatrical concert dance. However, my focus shifted in grad school, where I started developing work in performance that should live in a gallery space. Now that I am out of school, I have a great new project in the works but no idea how to make it happen. What are the unspoken rules for approaching art spaces and museums with performance work?

NEA Funds Benefit Both Rich and Poor, Study Finds
New York Times
Ever since the late 1980s, when the performance artist Karen Finley started playing with yams and chocolate, the NEA has come under fire from some conservative lawmakers. Now House Republicans charge that the endowment supports programming primarily attended by the rich, causing "a wealth transfer from poorer to wealthier citizens." A recent study challenges that assertion, concluding that federally supported arts programs attract people across the income spectrum.
