Guide to Election-Year Advocacy
American Alliance of Museums    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Since 2012 is an election year, you might be wondering how you can get involved. If you work for a private 501(c)(3) nonprofit, your museum receives certain tax benefits. With these advantages comes the requirement that you not participate in any "partisan" activities, or actions that appear to support or oppose a political candidate or political party. The IRS, however, explicitly preserves your right to advocate on behalf of your museum and its mission, and to involve your visitors, supporters, and community members in certain "nonpartisan" election-related activities. AAM has created a guide to help you distinguish between what is allowed and what is not. More

Are All Young Artists "Post-9/11" Artists?
National Public Radio    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When the museum curator Nicholas Bell was putting together the show Craft Futures: 40 under 40 at the Smithsonian Institution's Renwick Gallery, he realized the artists had something in common besides their under-forty status. Because of their youth, he felt that each of them could be classified as "post 9/11" artists. "Their worldview is defined by the angst, the unease, the trepidation of the difficulties of the twenty-first century," he says. More

University Press Realities
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
University presses are a reticent lot. We flourish offstage, delighted to shine the spotlight on our authors and their extraordinary works. We want them to get the glory; for ourselves, we hope only for enough reflected light to reveal our individual imprints as standards of excellence. Our books and journals speak not only for themselves, but for us. Apparently, they don't speak loudly enough. Our modesty—perhaps a virtue in other times—has become a liability. More

John Cage Centennial Festival: Will It Silence Critics in Washington?
Washington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
To many artists, he was one of the most inspiring figures of the twentieth century. To some musicians, he is underrated: branded, unfairly, more important as a thinker than a composer. And to a large segment of the public, he's a charlatan: a man who convinced some people that sitting onstage in silence for four minutes and thirty-three seconds could be construed as performing a work of music. John Cage—composer, philosopher, visual artist, mushroom enthusiast—would have been one hundred years old last week. More
