When the Olympics Gave Out Medals for Art
Smithsonian Magazine    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
At the 1912 Summer Olympics in Stockholm, the American Walter Winans took the podium and waved proudly to the crowd. He had already won two Olympic medals—a gold for sharpshooting at the 1908 London Games, as well as a silver for the same event in 1912—but the gold he won at Stockholm wasn't for shooting, or running, or anything particularly athletic at all. It was instead awarded for a small piece of bronze he had cast earlier that year: a twenty-inch-tall horse pulling a small chariot. For his work, An American Trotter, Winans won the first-ever Olympic gold medal for sculpture. More

Day One of the Semester
Chronicle of Higher Education    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
One of the things I love most about teaching is the constant sense of renewal, of beginning afresh. College professors get to experience that twice a year—and more often, if they teach on the quarter system or in the summer. Given the unique opportunity to constantly start over—with new classes and students, updated materials, maybe new classrooms and equipment—it strikes me that the first day of any class is the most important of the semester. It's the meeting that sets the tone for the rest of the term, helping you get the course off to a great start. Or not. More

Ai Weiwei "Never Sorry" for Exposing China's Oppression
ABC News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
There is perhaps no more glorious moment for a country than when it hosts the Olympic Games. Nations plan their opening ceremonies for years, calling on their top talent to weave a story of national unity and strength. But with glory comes scrutiny, and sometimes something happens to rip a hole in the carefully crafted tale. That's what happened four years ago in Beijing. The artist Ai Weiwei, who helped design the Bird's Nest stadium, the centerpiece of the 2008 games, did a surprising thing: he walked away and boycotted the Beijing Olympics, accusing the Chinese government of using the games as propaganda.

New York's Southern District Court Rules that Artworks Consigned to Galleries May Be Reached by Creditors
Center for Art Law    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
On July 10, a federal district judge, Cathy Seibel, ruled that New York state law may permit a bankrupt art gallery to sell an artwork to benefit its creditors, even if the piece was provided by a consignor. As a result of this ruling, Madonna and Child (ca. 1500)—a painting attributed to Sandro Botticelli and valued at $9.5 million—may provide relief to Salander-O'Reilly Gallery creditors, victims of one of the most infamous scams to rock the New York art world.

The Results Are In: Harkin Releases Critical Report on For-Profits
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A US Senate committee released an unflattering report on the for-profit college sector on Sunday, concluding a two-year investigation led by Senator Tom Harkin, an Iowa Democrat. While the report is ambitious in scope, and scathingly critical on many points, it appears unlikely to lead to a substantial legislative crackdown on the industry—at least not during this election year.

Museums Studying Dealer's Artifacts
New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Federal authorities are asking American museums to scrutinize their collections for items that they have obtained from a veteran Manhattan art dealer now accused of possessing antiquities stolen from India and other countries. The dealer, Subhash Kapoor, is under arrest in India, and the Manhattan district attorney's office has issued a warrant for his arrest in the United States on charges of possessing stolen property. Last week investigators seized more than $20 million worth of Asian antiquities from storage units in Manhattan linked to Kapoor. More
