Supreme Court Takes Up Scholars' Rights
Chronicle of Higher Education    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When Lawrence Golan picks up his baton at the University of Denver, the musicians in his student orchestra see a genial conductor who corrects their mistakes without raising his voice in frustration. Yet Golan is frustrated, not with the musicians, but with a copyright law that does them harm. For ten years, the music professor has been quietly waging a legal campaign to overturn the statute, which makes it impossibly expensive for smaller orchestras to play certain pieces of music. More

Enhancing the Image of Feminist Art
New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Can you name three female artists? The people asked that question outside the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art can't get much beyond Frida You-Know-Who-I-Mean. That's old, sad news to Lynn Hershman Leeson, the director of the film !Women Art Revolution, a documentary history of the feminist art movement. More

Universities to Artists: Get a Doctorate?
Huffington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Artists are people who create their own credentials. Certainly, art schools and universities offer an array of degrees and certificates, and various artist societies allow members to tag on some initials after their names, but artists are esteemed based on the quality of their work, its long- and short-term influence on other artists' work, where it has been exhibited and collected. No degree can confer value or importance to a work of art, although it may be useful in helping an artist obtain a job (and keep it), at least as instructors in colleges and universities. More

The War on Labor
Artinfo.com    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A handful of right-wing US governors spent much of the spring fighting to roll back gains made by working people in the twentieth century. Mostly in the rust belt, Republican governors have tried to dissolve workers' right to collective bargaining. The strangest attack on labor, however, came in Maine, where Republican governor Paul LePage ordered the removal of a thirty-six-foot mural from a state Labor Department building. Created by the artist Judy Taylor in 2008, the mural highlighted twentieth-century social progress in Maine, including the abolition of child labor and the advancement of equal pay for equal work for women. Wildly controversial stuff, no? More

The Art Assembly Line
Wall Street Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
It's a phenomenon that's rarely discussed in the art world: The new work on a gallery wall wasn't necessarily painted by the artist who signed it. Some well-known artists, such as Damien Hirst and Jeff Koons, openly employ small armies of assistants to do their paintings and sculptures. Others hire help more quietly. More

Kansas Governor Eliminates State's Arts Funding
Los Angeles Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
While many Americans were enjoying the start of the Memorial Day weekend, Kansans were gaining the dubious distinction of becoming the nation's only citizens to live in a state without an arts agency. Republican governor Sam Brownback took the major step of privatizing the arts in Kansas, turning back the clock to a pre-1960s era. The governor erased state funding for arts programs, leaving the Kansas Arts Commission with no budget, no staff, and no offices. More



Gaming the Archives
Chronicle of Higher Education    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
There's no shortage of fabulous archival material lurking in college and university collections. The trick is finding it. Without good metadata—labels that tell researchers and search engines what's in a photograph, say—those archives are as good as closed to many students and scholars. But many institutions don't have the resources or manpower to tag their archives thoroughly. More

Seventeenth-Century Art: The Landscape Comes of Age
New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
What is it that induced seventeenth-century European artists to paint natural settings for their own sake? The first international exhibition of European landscape painting in that period, which just closed at the Grand Palais in Paris but will reopen at the Prado in Madrid on July 5, does not tackle a question that comes to haunt visitors as they walk through the show, titled in French Nature and the Ideal: Landscape Painting in Rome, 1600–1650.
