Utah Researcher Helps Artist Make Bulletproof Skin
Associated Press via Google News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A bioart project to create bulletproof skin has given a Utah State researcher even more hope that his genetically engineered spider silk can be used to help surgeons heal large wounds and create artificial tendons and ligaments. Randy Lewis and his collaborators gained worldwide attention recently when they found a commercially viable way to manufacture silk fibers using goats and silkworms that had spider genes inserted into their makeup.

One Hundred Years Ago, the Mona Lisa Was Stolen
Toronto Star    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
That impenetrable smile. Bemusement? Seduction? Indulgence? Vincenzo Peruggia was able to gaze leisurely at those fine curving lips, alone, for two years. Just he and La Gioconda—the Mona Lisa to you and me, the Leonardo masterpiece Peruggia stole from the Louvre, where he worked, on August 21, 1911. It was the art world's first blockbuster heist, an act that made international headlines and fuelled global whodunit theories until the portrait was recovered and the thief unmasked. More

Wacom Cintiq Is an LCD Screen You Can Draw On
Wired News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
As an artist, I've always wanted some sort of one-to-one input when working in Photoshop or zBrush. I've used several of the traditional input tablets, but I’ve never been fully satisfied. I still ended up drawing on paper and scanning the results. It's just more natural. Input tablets have been constantly improving in the decades they've been around. But the technology remains imperfect. More

Egypt Uprising Art Brightens Cairo, Tempts Buyers
Reuters    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A flowering of Egyptian art since the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak is adding color to the capital Cairo and aiding an upswing in business at the city's galleries, as the pride, anger, and optimism of a long-frustrated generation plays out on canvas. Politically inspired photography, graphic design, and graffiti sprayed or stencilled on walls, fences, bridges, and flyovers have flourished since the eighteen-day uprising toppled the autocratic leader.

Martin Luther King Sculpture Reveals a "Stone of Hope"
Detroit News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
"Out of the Mountain of Despair, a Stone of Hope," reads the inscription for a thirty-foot sculpture of Martin Luther King Jr. on the National Mall in Washington, DC. Across the Tidal Basin from the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, the King sculpture is part of the new memorial whose dedication takes place on Sunday, August 28, on the forty-eighth anniversary of the March on Washington and the civil-rights leader's world-shaking "I have a dream" speech.

The Gossip Scene
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When I entered graduate school a few years ago, I didn't expect to be doing all that much talking and listening. Instead, I thought the bulk of my time would be devoted to reading and writing. That was before I became acquainted with the gossip scene. When I learned information, whether about funding or courses, instructors or classmates, I felt compelled to share it with my close confidantes. And, sometimes, my not-so-close confidantes. More

Museums' Fine Art of Protecting Masterpieces
Washington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Four-and-a-half months after being charged with trying to tear a Gauguin painting from a wall in the National Gallery of Art, a Virginia woman was arrested in a similar assault on a work by Matisse at the museum. In both cases, the paintings were unscathed. But the ease with which she allegedly approached and manipulated these works of art spotlights one of the museum community's greatest dilemmas: How can arts institutions protect cultural masterpieces without hurting the intimate viewing experience? More

Who Invented Landscape Painting?
Real Clear Arts    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
East or West? Which culture started art's love affair with nature? How many curators does it take to provide the answers? A soon-to-open exhibition at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art doesn't quite ask those questions, partly because some of the answer is very clear, but it got me thinking nonetheless. More
