Man Held after Poussin Painting Is Vandalized at National Gallery
Guardian    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A seventeenth-century painting by Nicolas Poussin was vandalized at the National Gallery in London after a fifty-seven-year-old man reportedly sprayed it with red paint before being arrested by police. The Adoration of the Golden Calf, completed by the French classicist in 1634, along with a smaller painting on the adjacent wall in the Poussin room, was attacked at about 5:00 PM. More

The Artlessness of Art Thieves
Wall Street Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Myles J. Connor Jr. is a member of the high-IQ group Mensa. He collects antique Samurai swords, has owned a pet cobra, and speaks with a high-flown Massachusetts Brahmin accent. In 1975, wearing a beard, glasses, tweed suit, and fedora, he strode out of Boston's Museum of Fine Arts carrying Rembrandt's Portrait of a Girl Wearing a Gold-Trimmed Cloak (1632). An accomplice raked the museum steps with machine-gun fire to hold off guards, and the men sped away. They were smart, brash, precise, flamboyant: just what we expect from our art thieves and almost never get. More

Rethinking How We Teach the "Net Generation"
National Public Radio    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Few will argue about America's colleges and universities being critical to our economic and intellectual future. By many measures, that future looks promising: competition for places in the country's top schools is fiercer than ever, more families are willing to pay higher tuition, and employers are putting a greater premium on a college degree. But Don Tapscott, coauthor of Macrowikinomics: Rebooting Business and the World, argues that universities are woefully behind the times. Tapscott tells NPR that the traditional lecture model in American universities is no longer appropriate for a generation that has grown up making, changing, and learning from digital communities.

The Value of Self-Promotion
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
One of the biggest myths of academia is that you only have to be smart enough and have good ideas to succeed. Nothing could be further from the truth. For better or worse, the marketization of academia and the persistence of "old boys' clubs" in universities around the world means that who you know is just as important as what you know. We believe that it is a cruel disservice to graduate students for advisers not to prepare them for the realities of academia, no matter how much they might wish things were otherwise. When you do finally get something published, one of the most important things that you can do is send offprints of the article or copies of the book to the senior colleagues in your field. More

Who Owns Spiral Jetty?
Reuters    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Greg Allen is a true polymath: he's a filmmaker, curator, art collector, web entrepreneur, and philanthropist. He's an artist in his own right: he likes to play with conceptual art-about-art-about-art works. He even has an MBA in finance from Wharton. Now he's set up the Jetty Foundation, which has made a bid to lease the site of Robert Smithson's most iconic work from the state of Utah. More

Sculptor Finds Alleged Copies of His Work in Corporate Collection
Art Newspaper    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The California-based sculptor Don Wakefield recently discovered what seemed to be one of his large-scale, granite sculptures in a private corporate collection in Newport Beach, California. The problem is that he didn’t make the work. Wakefield says the sculpture, which stands outside Seven Corporate Plaza, is a copy of Untitled, a unique abstract piece he and an artist friend, Joseph "Chick" Glickman, designed and created together in 1992. The 6 x 4 foot original is installed in the home of Glickman's son in Chicago. It seems that the alleged copy, which has been given the title Human Natures: Many Faces (2005) may be one of several made by an anonymous Chinese stone carver in Beijing. More

Huffington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The University of Texas system and Ryan O'Neal are sparring over the ownership of an Andy Warhol portrait of the actor’s longtime companion, Farrah Fawcett. The system's board of regents sued O'Neal in federal court in Los Angeles, asking a judge to order the Oscar-nominated actor to turn over the painting. The portrait is one of two that Warhol made of the Charlie's Angels star, and the university claims the actress bequeathed it to its Austin campus. More
