MOST POPULAR ARTICLE
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.

Decompressing Salaries
Inside Higher Ed
It's a dilemma many universities face: how to attract new, top faculty with competitive salaries without being unfair to senior professors, whose salaries often are tied to a pay scale or plan that hasn't kept up with the outside market. Weighing recruiting needs against a desire to alleviate the morale-busting effect of salary compression on faculty, one Midwest university has launched a series of initiatives to address it.

Faulty Towers

A few years ago, when I was still teaching at Yale, I was approached by a student who was interested in going to graduate school. She had her eye on Columbia; did I know someone there she could talk with? I did, an old professor of mine.

Move Over Galleries: Artists Sign with Agents
Art Newspaper
The British artist Stuart Semple has signed a contract for worldwide representation with the fashion agency Next Management, a move that highlights again how the traditional artist–gallery relationship is changing. Several artists, including Damien Hirst and Keith Tyson, have agents or managers who provide financial advice and handle their business dealings with galleries, but Semple says his collaboration will more closely resemble relationships in the music industry, where managers act as a buffer between their acts and the outside world, helping to promote their work and negotiate their projects.

Help Desk: Art Consultant
Daily Serving
I was just approached by an art consultant who asked me "how I normally work with art consultants." I think what the person wanted to know is how I want to divide sales, like a percentage ratio, and I just don't know what is normal. I tried to find online standards for art consultant–artist relationships that develop without a gallery being involved, but everything was all over the place and contradictory.

The Humanities, Unraveled
Chronicle of Higher Education
Let me start with the bad news. It is not even news anymore; it is simply bad. Graduate education in the humanities is in crisis. Every aspect, from the most specific details of the curriculum to the broadest questions about its purpose, is in crisis. It is a seamless garment of crisis: if you pull on any one thread, the entire thing unravels.

Four Common Misconceptions on Creative Thinking in Research
Inside Higher Ed
Research is a creative activity. In essence, to solve your research question, you will need to take a step outside the boundaries of current knowledge. If you are expected to develop a new theory as part of your research, you certainly need to get your creative juices flowing. When we read the work of great scientists, it sometimes seems as if they possess of some extraordinary tweak in their brain that makes them capable of taking a visionary leap and pushing their field to new advances. In reality, however, all creative solutions are simply the result of a long process of trying, researching, and chewing at the end of pencils.

Fire at Pratt Institute Destroys Studios and Artwork of Students
New York Times
Maria De Los Angeles, a twenty-four-year-old student at Pratt Institute, has an admissions interview at Yale University's graduate art school next month and was planning to show the officers there some of her one hundred paintings and three hundred prints. But in last Friday's early hours, a fast-moving fire ravaged the top two floors of the historic main building at the private art, design, and architecture college in Brooklyn, destroying dozens of art studios and the precious works they contained.

Will You Lose Your Museum Job to a Robot?
Center for the Future of Museums
OK, maybe not to a robot, but to increasingly sophisticated automation. This question is prompted by a report released last month by the Associated Press forecasting the effect of technology on the economy and employment. The thesis of the authors is that the world is experiencing the first real "jobless recovery" in history, as we bounce back from the great recession of 2008. They argue that the millions of jobs that went away in the past few years not only are not coming back, even more jobs will be lost as automation takes over more work.

A Critic's Take on Arts and Entrepreneurship
Audience Wanted
"Arts entrepreneurship" certainly isn't an oxymoron, unless your definition of art is so narrow that any business success disqualifies it—the attitude of the stereotypical rock snob for whom the little-heard indie debut is always better than the major-label follow-up. On the other hand, the conflict between art and commerce is age old, and there's no question pandering to an audience can undermine artistic quality. But there's no magic formula for striking the balance.

Sotheby's Sued over Caravaggio Attribution
Art Newspaper
Sotheby's is being sued for damages over a work it attributed to a "follower" of Caravaggio that sold at auction in London to the late collector and scholar Denis Mahon in 2006, for a hammer price of £42,000. Mahon subsequently identified the painting as a work "by the hand of Caravaggio" and obtained an export license for it that gave an estimated selling price of £10 million, according to a claim filed at London’s High Court of Justice.
