The Most Expensive Colleges in the Country Are Art Schools, not Ivies
Washington Post
I recently stumbled across this handy tool from the Department of Education, which generates lists of colleges by cost. The schools that usually get dinged for high tuition (and as a result, scare off low-income applicants) are the elite colleges. But many of those schools are quite rich and distribute a lot of financial aid.

Sure, I Do Creative Work, but I'm No Artist
Pacific Standard
Who, exactly, is an artist? Many claim the title, with little to back up their assertion. We’ve all met people who define themselves as artists but have yet to actually produce any actual art. A new study finds that, surprisingly, the reverse is also true. It identifies a large group of Americans who have every right to call themselves professional artists but for some reason avoid doing so.

Russian Oligarchs and Brazilian Millionaires Interested in DIA? Orr Was Speaking Metaphorically
Detroit Free Press
OK, let's clear up any misunderstanding: Russian oligarchs and Brazilian millionaires are not amassed in front of the Detroit Institute of Arts in the hopes of being first in line should the treasures inside go up for sale. But that doesn't mean they, or someone like them, aren't intensely interested. While giving a speech at the University of Michigan, Detroit emergency manager Kevyn Orr said that many Russian oligarchs—meaning super-wealthy Russian businessmen—and Brazilian millionaires were "calling and inquiring" about the art. However, Orr's spokesman Bill Nowling clarified that the emergency manager spoke metaphorically.

United We Stand: How Galleries Are Working Together
Financial Times
From the Renaissance bottega to the art factories of Damien Hirst and Jeff Koons, artists have long recognized that they get by better with a little help from their friends. Institutions have been slower to catch on. As public funding dwindles, the scramble for sponsorship gets ever more rivalrous as museums vie to woo patrons with the glossiest gala dinner and most highbrow curatorial outing.
