About to Burst: The Art World's Intern Bubble
Art Slant    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Unpaid internship: a two-word phrase that makes any young creative cringe. The concept of providing work for free is an unfortunate reality in most every field and particularly indicative of a troubling larger issue in the artistic community. In an industry that already has a difficult time solidifying the marriage of labor and capital, an expectation like the unpaid internship warps the entire market. What could be a hands-on learning experience often falls flat, discrediting and disheartening the next generation of artists, curators, designers, gallerists, museum directors, and critics. More

Architect and 9/11 Memorial Both Evolved over the Years
New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A few years ago the World Trade Center memorial was in trouble. Michael Arad, an unknown young architect, had won the design competition in 2004, and by 2006 the estimated cost of the memorial and related projects had nearly tripled. The unbuilt project seemed to be "spinning out of control," according to an article in the New York Times in May 2006; that same month, a long profile of Arad in New York magazine had it teetering on "the brink of collapse." It was always clear that there were too many people and organizations with conflicting interests involved in the World Trade Center site for anything there to go smoothly. But some people thought that as good as Arad's design was, the architect himself was part of the problem. More

Digital Ink Pen Revolutionizes the Art of Creating Art
DVICE    Share    Share on
FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
One of the best things about writing about technology is that every now and then you run across something that is such a leap ahead it seems like you're witnessing magic (for example, the first iPhone). This was my reaction when I got my first look at the new Wacom Inkling digital sketch pen. Back when I was in art school, one of the most coveted (and expensive) tools an artist could have was a set of Rapidograph pens, renowned for their ability to deliver amazing detail and produce a line unmatched by any other drawing pen.

Understanding Blend Modes in iPad Art
Macworld    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The digital artist Kyle Lambert walks us through some of the most commonly used layer blend modes and explains when and how to use them in iPad painting apps. Layers are a massively important part of digital painting, allowing you to organize and separate different parts of your artwork; they also offer extra tricks, one of which is to facilitate the use of blend modes. Blend modes can change the way a layer in your painting interacts with the layer underneath it to produce a range of visual variations. More

Waking Up the White House on Arts Policy
Modern Art Notes    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When it comes to arts policy, the Obama administration has been a disappointment. It has helped to eliminate arts-related jobs by proposing spending cuts for the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities. After saying that art education would be a top arts-policy focus, the Obama administration has allowed art education funding to be slashed. Obama has failed to pursue most of the arts-related campaign promises he made in 2008. Instead, tokenism: the White House has been good at letting us know when it’s hung some new art. More

Grant Recipients and Race
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Every so often, the issue of financial aid awarded on the basis of students' race flares. Lawsuits crop up challenging a state's or institution's ability to consider race in handing out grants, or a white student (or a group of such students) announces the creation of a fund for scholarships reserved for white students, on the grounds that grant money flows disproportionately to members of minority groups. A new report challenges the assumptions underlying such developments. The study, by the financial aid analyst Mark Kantrowitz, is plain about its goal: to debunk what the author calls "the race myth, which claims that minority students receive more than their fair share of scholarships."

From Christ to Coke
Prospect    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The Greek word "icon" now seems to denote any thing, person, or idea that is, for whatever reason, a center of attention, and which has acquired a significance that raises it above the flow of ordinary events. It may be difficult to put this significance into words; but the crucial thing is that an icon is common property. For Martin Kemp, however, the religious icon is only one example of a much more widespread phenomenon, addressed in his new book Christ to Coke: How Image Becomes Icon. More

With Cheating Only a Click Away, Professors Reduce the Incentive
Chronicle of Higher Education    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
As soon as the handheld gadgets called "clickers" hit the University of Colorado in Boulder, Douglas Duncan saw cheating. The astronomy instructor and director of the Fiske Planetarium was observing a colleague's physics class in 2002, when the university introduced the electronic devices that students use to respond to in-class questions. He glanced at the first row and saw a student with four clickers spread out before him. It turned out that only one was his—the rest belonged to his sleeping roommates. More
