Can We Create a Culture That Values Good Teaching?
Chronicle of Higher Education
How do you change academic culture? One reason that question gets asked a lot is that it's so hard to answer. Another reason is that so much of academic culture needs changing. How might we create a culture that actually esteems effective teaching? The value of such a thing ought to be clear, if only because it would blunt some of the frequent public criticisms of universities for a too-narrow focus on research. But creating a teaching culture hasn't proved so easy.

The Story behind the Yams' Whitney Biennial Protest
Artnet News
I am on record as supporting the Yams collective’s decision to quit the Whitney Biennial. The art world clearly has a problem of institutionalized racism: it is shockingly white. When a group of dozens of African American artists pull out of an important art show, it is important to listen even if—or especially if—that conversation is difficult. The cause of the Yams exodus, as originally reported, was their objection to a work by Joe Scanlan, a white male artist who creates artwork in the guise of a fictional black female artist, Donelle Woolford.

How to Restore a Rothko (without Ruining a Rothko)
The Atlantic
In the 1980s, the art conservator Raymond Lafontaine developed a new way to preserve paintings: he used light from slide projects to augment works that had faded. The technique came from "thinking about color perception," Jens Stenger, a former conservation scientist in Harvard's Straus Center for Conservation and Technical Studies, explains. "In human color perception you have a light source, a surface, and a viewer, and the three interact. If you can't change the surface, you can change the light source to change the color."

Faculty Salaries Are Not the Problem
Adjunct Project
I've been deeply gratified lately to see increasing noise in the media about administrative salaries—and particularly presidential salaries—in higher education. What is coming to light now is what many faculty have known for years: universities don't have more overhead these days because of growth in the faculty ranks, but because of explosive growth of administrations and administrator salaries. Given their spending priorities, it seems like these new administrative behemoths are badly out of step with the mission and purpose of the university—at the expense of those most vital to the university's existence: faculty and students.

The ninety-three volumes detail the sales made between 1936 and 1945 by Adolf Weinmüller, whose auction house flourished during the Second World War thanks to the forced sale of Jewish collectors' personal property and the liquidation of Jewish art dealerships. The annotations in the catalogues include the names of consigners and buyers as well as the prices paid for the works.

Why Drawing Needs to Be a Curriculum Essential
The Guardian
Drawing has seen something of a renaissance in the last twenty years in the United Kingdom. From the Campaign for Drawing to the Drawing Research Network, and from the Drawing Room to the Rabley Drawing Centre, we've witnessed a proliferation of passion, effort, and energy matched by increased museum exhibitions, dedicated degree courses, professors, publications, and conferences. All of the above have been established in pursuit of understanding, developing, and promoting drawing, and many inside and outside the sector endure to evidence drawing as the most sophisticated means of thinking and communicating as well as an activity for everyone.

On Screen and on the Block
New York Times
Is digital art the next big thing in the contemporary art world? At the moment, the market for art that's created and displayed on a screen—as distinct from paintings, prints, and photos that are generated digitally and then printed—is small. Phillips's inaugural "Paddles ON!" sale of twenty digital and digitally related works in New York last October, held in association with the image-posting site Tumblr, was the first such event to be held at an international auction house.
