How Can We Reimagine Arts Schools?
Barry's Blog
Perhaps what was most thrilling and unexpected about the meeting of 250 arts leaders at the "3 Million Stories" conference was an emerging sense of urgency and excitement about the need to think seriously about how arts schools and training institutions—especially at the collegiate level—might reimagine themselves and respond to changes in how creative work is done and the nature of creative careers. In short, who will invent the twenty-first-century arts school?

STEM and Liberal Arts: Frenemies of the State
Plos
When I was getting ready for college, I knew I was going to pursue a degree in some area of science; I never even considered a liberal-arts degree. To be honest, I did my best to not take any liberal-arts courses I didn't need to. These classes were at odds with my science, and I didn't want to waste my time on something I wasn't going to use.

Sotheby's Controversial Sale of Precolumbian Artifacts Yields Low Sales Figures and Highlights the Increased Efforts of Countries to Repatriate Artifacts
Center for Art Law
Last week's sale of Precolumbian artifacts predominantly from the Barbier-Mueller collection, conducted at Sotheby's in Paris, proved an anticlimactic end to a controversial story. Though estimated to bring in $19 to 23 million, the sale only made $13.3 million, and 165 of the 313 lots were unsold. An unwelcome spotlight had been fixed on the sale, as four countries—Mexico, Peru, Guatemala, and Costa Rica—demanded return of artifacts that were allegedly stolen from their borders decades before.
