Previously Unknown Painting by Caravaggio Discovered in Britain
Telegraph    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A previously unknown painting by Caravaggio has been discovered in a private collection in Britain, according to experts. The work shows Saint Augustine poring over his books at a desk and has been dated to around 1600, when the artist would have been 28. The oil on canvas piece was unattributed until it was restored and showed Caravaggio's characteristics. Fewer than fifty of his paintings survive, and this new discovery will appear in print for the first time next month. More

Five Things Department Chairs Need to Know about Fundraising
Academic Impressions    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail
article
According to a January 2010 Academic Impressions survey of department chairs, 64 percent of them felt that they were not adequately prepared to assume the role when they first began chairing their department. Of the various duties and responsibilities of the academic chair, 43 percent felt least prepared to address advancement and fundraising initiatives. Yet by virtue of the chair's position, not only are there many times when a department leader will need to be involved in the conversation between a potential donor and the institution, there are also many times when the chair may need to be the only official involved in the conversation.

Americans for the Arts Talks Creativity
Huffington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
San Diego played host to the annual convention of Americans for the Arts from June 16 to 18, 2011, and the link among the arts, creativity, and innovation was clearly in evidence.

Both are supporting legislation to insure Californian kids have the new thinking skills the workplace demands in the global economy. More



Does This Make You Feel Uneasy?
Wall Street Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Photographers and filmmakers are uniquely vulnerable to the slander of "exploitation." One of those barbed words almost impossible to remove after someone hangs it around your neck, it has been used loosely to describe any act whereby the more privileged take advantage of the less privileged. Anyone holding a camera is deemed to be a potential abuser. High-art credentials are no defense. Diane Arbus, Richard Avedon, Walker Evans, Sally Mann, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Sebastião Salgado are only a few that critics have brought up on the charge. More
