SNAAP Report Focuses on the Impact of Gender, Race, and Socioeconomic Status on Arts Graduates
Indiana University
Findings from a national study released last week by the Strategic National Arts Alumni Project (SNAAP) show that a postsecondary arts education affords some unique advantages for women, minorities, and disadvantaged students. However, significant gaps remain and inequalities persist related to school debt, racial diversity within artistic occupations, and disparities in earnings by gender. The report, An Uneven Canvas: Inequalities in Artistic Training and Careers, details findings from more than 65,000 arts alumni of all ages from 120 institutions in the United States and Canada.

Five Facts about Professional Artists in the United States
Washington Post

Museums Faulted on Restitution of Nazi-Looted Art
New York Times
Not until 1998, when forty-four nations including the United States signed the groundbreaking Washington Principles on Nazi-Confiscated Art, did governments and museums formally embrace the idea that they have a special responsibility to repair the damage caused by the wholesale looting of art owned by Jews during the Third Reich's reign. Now, fifteen years later, historians, legal experts, and Jewish groups say that some American museums have backtracked on their pledge to settle Holocaust recovery claims on the merits.

The Googleheim Museum of Art
Yahoo News
Google may have set out to "organize the world's information," but thanks to the creativity of a huge variety of artists, designers, hackers, and other tinkerers it's become something else: an art museum hidden within a search engine. Because a slew of people have found clever ways to exploit or misuse Google's tools and algorithms and endless troves of data, Google has accidentally become a mother lode of artistic inspiration (and, often humorously, a passive artistic collaborator.)
