Does Increased Exposure to a Piece of Art Make Us Like It More?
Phys.Org
The research challenges the idea that what people value in art is largely what they are used to, or that people will come to like any image if they see it enough times. Instead, the study's findings suggest that increased exposure to artworks does not necessarily make people like them more and that the quality of an artwork remains at the heart of its evaluation.

Nazi-Looted Art "Found in Munich"
BBC News
A collection of 1,500 artworks confiscated by the Nazis in the 1930s and 1940s has been found in the German city of Munich. The trove is believed to include works by Matisse, Picasso, and Chagall, the news magazine Focus reports. Some of the works were declared as degenerate by the Nazis, while others were stolen from or forcibly sold for a pittance by Jewish art collectors. If confirmed, it would be one of the largest recoveries of looted art.

Painting Thought to Be by Delacroix Discovered in Santa Barbara
Los Angeles Times
Eik Kahng, curator at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, believes she has identified a previously unknown painting by Eugène Delacroix. Given the stature of the French Romantic innovator, that's no small thing. The painting turned up in a local private collection—the Van Asch van Wyck Trust—and Kahng has now included it in her newly opened exhibition, Delacroix and the Matter of Finish.

Hurricane Sandy, One Year Later
Architectural Record
The predictable chaos and lack of information are the outcome of any disaster, but one year after Sandy (which killed 150 people and damaged or destroyed some 650,000 houses), officials, charities, and disaster experts are concluding that much can be done to smooth the recovery process—and that there's more for architects to do other than drive-by damage assessments and holding empty "ideas" competitions. Now architects are working in neighborhoods to link people to the resources they need.

Who Are You, Really?
On Hiring
Employment-related screening tools were the focus of conversation in the human-resources class I teach. As I expected, there were plenty of questions about how employers use internet searches to make decisions about applicant suitability and a fair amount of outrage about how completely unfair employers are when it comes to using digital content to make hiring decisions.

Understanding Cover Letters
Inside Higher Ed
Recently, on a listserv in my field known for being welcoming to outsiders and newcomers but also for being rife with discussions that quickly turn ridiculous, a thread on cover letters followed the usual pattern: a new grad student asks what seems to be an innocuous question, a few professors offer semihelpful responses without getting too sucked in, the rogue academic contributes some tongue-in-cheek humor, a few more grad students take the jokes seriously and panic, and the list erupts in false information and rumors.

As Street Art Grows More Popular, Is It Losing Its Edge?

New York City is a mecca for art, but the latest exhibition drawing crowds isn't located in a museum—this show is taking place on the streets of the five boroughs, in places you wouldn't expect art to hang. This particular work, called Waiting in Vain at the Door of the Club, is actually a piece by a man who goes by the name Banksy, an English-born street artist who prefers to remain incognito.
