The Most Expensive Colleges in the Country Are Art Schools, not Ivies
Washington Post
I recently stumbled across this handy tool from the Department of Education, which generates lists of colleges by cost. The schools that usually get dinged for high tuition (and as a result, scare off low-income applicants) are the elite colleges.

You're Sure of a Big Surprise
Art Newspaper
Museums across the United States are hiring staff under the "public engagement" rubric, often as part of their education departments. The Henry Art Gallery in Seattle is seeking "a director of education and public engagement," and in January the Whitney Museum in New York hired a "director of public programs and public engagement."

AAMD Sanctions Delaware Art Museum
Association of Art Museum Directors
AAMD is deeply troubled and saddened that the Delaware Art Museum has deaccessioned and sold a work of art from its collection to pay outstanding debt and build its operating endowment. Art museums collect works of art for the benefit of present and future generations. Responsible stewardship of a museum's collection and the conservation, exhibition, and study of these works are the heart of a museum's commitment to its community and to the public.

Help Desk: To Apply Oneself

The annual application process for many residencies, fellowships, and publishing opportunities is tough.

No One Sits Here Anymore: How Spikes and Fences Erase Communal Life
Creative Time Reports
Since the day it first opened, the windows of my neighborhood gym have been a gathering point for neighbors. They're right at street level, and they're big. Lots of us had sat on their deep windowsills for many years, most of all the Pakistanis who live in the surrounding area. Note that I wrote, "had sat," because ever since Barcelona's City Hall installed some giant metal plates, no one sits there anymore. The gatherings and chitchats are over.

How Cities Use Design to Drive Homeless People Away
The Atlantic
Earlier this month, someone tweeted a picture of a series of metal spikes built into the ground outside a London apartment building. The spikes were intended to discourage homeless people from sleeping in the area, and their presence sparked a public outcry. London's mayor called the spikes "ugly, self defeating & stupid," and the mayor of Montreal called similar spikes in his own city "unacceptable!!!!" Protesters poured concrete over a set of spikes outside a Tesco supermarket. Then, after a petition was signed by nearly 130,000 people, the spikes were removed from the London apartment building, the Tesco, and downtown Montreal.

Hemingway: A Simple Online Tool for Better Short-Form Writing (Museum 2.0)
Art History Teaching Resources
Exhibit labels. Promotional text. Grant proposals. For many arts and museum professionals, writing one-hundred-word chunks of text is a daily activity. Unfortunately, much of that writing is lousy. We have great references for better art writing but don't always use them. Instead we pack sentences with highfalutin vocabulary, pepper them with clauses, and wrap them up in insider language. Recently, I discovered an online tool called Hemingway that can change that. Its intent is "to make your writing bold and clear."
