For its nineteenth annual conference on American art, Initiatives in Art and Culture will use as a point of departure its 2013 gathering, "Reclaiming American Art," which reacquainted scholars with artists who, while famous at one time, were no longer well known, and with particular phases of artists' oeuvres that fell from favor as tastes changed.

Sustaining Open Access
Inside Higher Ed
A recently proposed model on open-access publishing has drawn praise for rethinking the roles institutions, libraries, and professional organizations play in promoting scholarly communication, but can its collaborative structure be sustained? The proposal envisions stakeholders forming partnerships, each handling one or more of the duties of funding, distributing, and preserving open-access scholarly research—specifically in the humanities and social sciences.

What's the Most Common Mistake Artists Make?
KCET
Your question has set my head spinning. There are so many possibilities. So many mistakes that artists make—like not taking the business side of art seriously or only taking it seriously in the middle of a crisis when, as I mentioned in my last post, it is too late. Or romanticizing the "starving artist" notion. Or allowing themselves to become resentful of other artists' success.

New York Times

The way we habitually think and talk about these matters betrays a deep and venerable ambivalence.

Sixteen Artist Hangouts You Can Still Go To
CNN
Since the days of Hemingway and Faulkner, bars and cafes where writers, painters, and performance artists go to procrastinate have often caught the public's imagination. The romance of the artist's hangout is irresistible. From rivalries fermented over drinks to witty one-liners exchanged by Dorothy Parker and her well-read pals, these are the places of a struggling artist's networking dreams. Even better, some of the most iconic artist hangouts and literary pubs that continue to welcome patrons today.
