  Jewish Artists and the Bible in Twentieth-Century America
By Samantha Baskind

“In her brilliant new book, Samantha Baskind shows how the Bible—not necessarily only a Jewish Bible (Tanach) but also the American Bible of the Puritans—echoes in Jewish American art. Looking at Jack Levine, George Segal, Audrey Flack, Larry Rivers, and R. B. Kitaj, Baskind provides a sophisticated and critical reading of how religious imagery survives and flourishes in our secular world.” —Sander L. Gilman, Emory University

DIA Grand Bargain Could Prove to Be a Work of Art, but Not a Done Deal
Detroit Free Press
In 1919, with the Detroit Institute of Arts in dire financial straits and Detroit's economy booming, museum leaders ceded ownership of the art and building to city hall in exchange for annual funding. Nearly a century later, history is preparing to do a somersault. Detroit is now bankrupt, DIA is more financially stable than it has been in decades, and the museum stands on the brink of being spun off into an independent charitable trust that would once again own the collection and building.

Museum Object Portfolio Performance
Art History Teaching Resources
Most of us have some experience teaching with art "in the flesh"—in museums or galleries—rather than our usual fallback of classroom PowerPoint, Offline Image Viewer, which is ARTstor's presentation technology, or Prezi presentations. And we often send students to a local museum or university gallery to write responses of one sort or another, giving them direct access to the original artwork. But in my undergraduate museum-studies class this semester, I wanted my students to consider the variety of ways that text can be used to introduce, augment, and/or constrain our response to the original object.

Hoard d'Oeuvres: Art of the 1 Percent
The Baffler
Art collecting is the most esteemed form of shopping in our culture today. And in today's digital economy, you can monitor this primal battle of achieving egos as it unfolds in real time, on computer screens. At auction you watch incomparable works of art vanish into exchange value: all that's solid truly melts into air. The spectacle of yen, dollars, and euros mounting on the screen climaxes in the money shot: the sale price.

The Joys and Perils of Artistic Collaborations
Financial Times
Artists aren't exactly known for their accommodating, easygoing ways. More often, it's words such as "egocentric" and "introverted" that spring to mind. In reality, though, few artists work in total isolation, especially once they have achieved a certain level of success. Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst have teams of assistants making their work—yet these assistants can hardly be called collaborators. At the other end of the fame scale, collaboration is crucial for so-called emerging artists, through sharing materials and workspaces and exchanging ideas.
