Three bond insurers, the city's largest employee union, and several European banks filed a motion in federal court last week asking Judge Steven Rhodes to appoint a committee to oversee an independent evaluation of the market value of the multibillion-dollar city-owned collection at the DIA.

Debating an MFA? The Lowdown on Art School Risks and Returns
Modern Painters
For aspiring artists, December is the cruelest month, when thoughts of pursuing an MFA must turn to action or be cast to the winds. It's grad-school application time—and what a time it is to undertake such a commitment! Given the skyrocketing cost of tuition, mounting student debt, high interest rates on loans, and a tough job market, you'd be crazy not to measure your education's value against the risk involved in paying for it, especially if you are considering a master's degree in art or design.

When Do Great Artists Hit Peak Creativity?
Pacific Standard Magazine
The question of when highly accomplished people reach their peak level of creativity has long fascinated researchers. Some make huge breakthroughs relatively early in life: think of Igor Stravinsky, who composed the groundbreaking ballet The Rite of Spring at age 31. Others go through an extensive period of trial and error before finding their unique voice. A 2011 study found modern-day physicists make their most innovative discoveries at age 48.

Are Arts Donors Also Arts Leaders?
Chicago Tribune
If a wealthy person writes a large check to a worthy cultural organization, does that constitute an act of leadership? It's an interesting question. You'd think it must, since that increasingly has become the descriptive word of choice, along with "vision," in the speeches of thanks from grateful recipients, preferably coupled with adjectives on the level of "extraordinary" or "stunning."

California Using $2 Million Arts Grant Windfall for New Programs

The California Arts Council, the agency behind state government's arts grants, is putting down most of its chips from a one-time, $2 million funding windfall on several new bets involving arts education and community improvement through the arts. Arts council leaders are hoping that quick payoffs in the form of early success stories from the new programs will improve the long-neglected agency's chances of replenishing its depleted funding.
