A New Way Forward
Wall Street Journal
While some American art museums receive some government support, most depend on three main sources of money: (1) earned income from admissions, retail, restaurants, and the like; (2) revenue drawn from their endowments; and (3) annual contributions, which too often provide the largest part.

An Adjunct's Death Becomes a Rallying Cry for Many in Academe
Chronicle of Higher Education
An op-ed column about the death of a former longtime adjunct faculty member at Duquesne University has drawn new attention to the working conditions of instructors off the tenure track. The column, published in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, says that Margaret Mary Vojtko was underpaid and underappreciated during her twenty-five years of teaching French at the Roman Catholic university, and that she was nearly destitute when she died, on September 1, at the age of 83.

Open to All?
Frieze Blog
Does free admission guarantee accessibility to art? It's now nearly twelve years since it became mandatory for publicly funded museums and galleries in the United Kingdom to offer free admission. While visitor numbers have rocketed, studies have shown that the demographics of visitors have barely shifted. In essence, those from low-income backgrounds are still massively underrepresented.

Refuting the Myths about the Armory Show
ARTnews
One hundred years ago, some 87,000 New Yorkers packed into the 69th Regiment Armory over the course of a month to see nearly 1,400 works of modern art by more than 300 international artists. Research for exhibitions commemorating the centennial of the notorious Armory Show, however, reveals that it included more American, historical, and even female artists than many accounts include.

Using Classroom Assessment Techniques: A Proactive Approach for Online Learning
Faculty Focus
There are two main forms of assessment often used within the online classroom. Both formative and summative assessments evaluate student learning and assist instructors in guiding instructional planning and delivery. While the purpose of a summative assessment is to check for mastery following the instruction, formative assessment focuses on informing teachers in ways to improve student learning during lesson delivery. Each type of assessment has a specific place and role within education, both traditional and online.

Tracking Stolen Art, for Profit, and Blurring a Few Lines
New York Times
Early in the morning of May 11, 1987, someone smashed through the glass doors of the Museum of Modern Art in Stockholm, removed a Matisse from a wall, and fled. All it took was daring and a sledgehammer. The whereabouts of the painting, Le Jardin, remained a mystery until the work was found last year and made a celebratory trip home in January. But law enforcement played no role. The return was facilitated by the Art Loss Register, a London-based company that over the last two decades has evolved into a little-noticed but increasingly integral part of art investigation around the world.

Getty Lab Cleans Jackson Pollock's 1943 Mural—What a Difference!
Los Angeles Times
When does a Jackson Pollock painting look more like a Jackson Pollock painting? Simple: when it's clean. That's the not-altogether surprising thought that came to mind when I dropped by the J. Paul Getty Museum's conservation lab the other day to check out progress on Pollock's monumental 1943 Mural. Star of the collection at the University of Iowa Museum of Art, the epic painting had arrived in Los Angeles a year ago for extensive treatment.

The New Economy of Letters
Chronicle Review
Every day, more scholars are writing more words for less money than ever before: they are self-publishing and tweeting and blogging and MOOC-ing. Much of this is all to the good, especially insofar as it disseminates knowledge. The new economy of letters, however, hasn't made academic writing better, but it has made it harder for certain kinds of intellectuals to be heard. All the noise has silenced the modest, the untenured, and the politically moderate.
