How to Look at Mondrian
The Huffington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
What I have in mind is a series of lessons about how to use your eyes more concertedly, with more patience, than you might ordinarily do. It's about stopping, and taking the time to simply look, and keep looking, until the details of the world slowly reveal themselves. My opening example is Mondrian. More

The University vs. Liberal Education
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
It has by now become received wisdom: college students today are less interested in traditional subjects, and have become more professionally oriented. They've voted with their feet, choosing business, pre-med, and engineering majors over German, art history, or comparative literature. Clearly, it's in the zeitgeist. Unfortunately for humanities professors, however, lower enrollment can translate into the elimination of entire departments. More

Forget the Canvas: That's the Message of David Hockney's
New Paris Exhibition

Art Daily    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Canvas is just so 20th century. That's the message of David Hockney's new Paris exhibition, where glowing iPads and iPhones—their screens a changing medley of still lives and landscapes created by the celebrated British artist on the "Brushes" application—replace traditional canvases. Dozens of the apparatuses are bolted onto the walls, their flat screens aglow with drawings of jagged mountains, somber interiors, and bouquets of flowers in eye-popping colors. More

The Creative Campus: Time for a 'C' Change
The Chronicle of Higher Education    Share    Share
on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In the past few years, we've been hearing a lot of talk about fostering creativity, on campus and in society. Some college leaders claim to have found the secret formula, while others ask how to place creativity at the center of campus and academic life. The creative turn in higher education, however, remains only a series of ad hoc experiments. Still, emerging insights from these experiments, new research about creativity, and changing labor and market forces could tip the efforts into something much more significant in education reform.
