The Young Wellesley Professor Who Invented Contemporary Art
Boston Globe
When you think of the cities that helped define cutting-edge art in the twentieth century, you think of Paris, New York, maybe Berlin. In the standard histories, Boston plays a decidedly background role, with the city's gatekeepers ensuring that the wild works by artists like Picasso, Braque, or Mondrian didn’t soil their elegant private and public collections. "Boston is very dead so far as contemporary art is concerned," complained a young Wellesley art-history instructor, Alfred Barr Jr., writing to a friend and gallery owner in New York in 1926, well after modernism had caught fire elsewhere.

Arts Majors Jump Ahead of Tech Grads in Landing Jobs
USA Today
Here's a surprise for college students: recent graduates with technology degrees are having a tougher time finding a job than their peers in the arts. The unemployment rate for recent grads with a degree in information systems is more than double that of drama and theater majors, at 14.7 percent vs. 6.4 percent, according to a recent Georgetown University study. Even for computer-science majors, the jobless rate for recent grads nears 9 percent.

Protecting Detroit's Artwork Is a Job for Detroit
Wall Street Journal
By now, everybody knows that the city of Detroit has finally filed for bankruptcy—and everybody in the art world knows that its museum, the Detroit Institute of Arts, is in deep trouble. Here's why: Detroit owes roughly $18 billion that it doesn't have. The sixty-thousand-plus works of art in the permanent collection are owned by the city, not the museum (as is normally the case). According to the Detroit Free Press, the thirty-eight most important pieces have a market value of about $2.5 billion. What next?

Only the Artists Can Save the Arts Critics
The Guardian
How do you put a price on thought? How do you price an opinion? How do you even price the creative thought that the opinion was formed on? How do you do this in a culture—I think that's the right word—where people are used not only to getting opinion for nothing, but expect good information for nothing as well?

Caveat Emptor: An Art Exhibit Made Entirely of Forgeries Confiscated by the FBI
Huffington Post
Upon entering Caveat Emptor you will likely recognize the exhibition's work with confidence. Iconic pieces made famous by art legends such as Chagall, Warhol, Gauguin, and de Kooning adorn the walls, and yet, you probably haven't heard of a single artist showing. That's right, Caveat Emptor, which translates to "let the buyer beware," is composed entirely of forgeries that have been confiscated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The Hole in Our Collective Memory: How Copyright Made Midcentury Books Vanish
The Atlantic
Last year I wrote about research being done by Paul J. Heald at the University of Illinois, based on software that crawled Amazon for a random selection of books. At the time, his results were only preliminary, but they were nevertheless startling: there were as many books available from the 1910s as there were from the 2000s. The number of books from the 1850s was double the number available from the 1950s. Why? Copyright protections—which cover titles published in 1923 and after—had squashed the market for books from the mid-twentieth century, keeping those titles off shelves and out of the hands of the reading public.

Did You Hear That? It Was Art
New York Times
Nothing? Listen again. Note the sound of your computer's fan amid distant sirens. Hear your spouse in the next room, playing the Bowie channel on Spotify while chatting on the phone with your mother-in-law. Farther off, a TV is tuned to the news and a stereo plays Bach, while a mouse skitters inside a wall. And know that every one of those sounds can now be the subject of art, just as every vision we see and imagine, from fruit in a bowl to the color of light to melting clocks, has been grist for painting and sculpture and photos.
