Paint It High and Deep
Chronicle of Higher Education    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Most working artists in America (certainly most who teach at colleges and universities) hold a master of fine arts degree, established by the College Art Association, more than fifty years ago, as the terminal degree in the fine arts. As Dan Berrett writes in the Chronicle, however, that may be about to change. CAA is now tiptoeing around the idea of embracing the studio PhD as the new terminal degree in the fine arts. Recently, CAA hosted a workshop, entitled "PhD for Artists: Sense or Nonsense?" The title tells you everything you need to know about how differently people in the art world view the idea. More

Dispute over Bill on Borrowed Art
New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The lending and borrowing of famous artworks is the essence of cultural exchange between museums in the United States and abroad. So routine is the practice, and so universally valued, that the American government has traditionally protected it with a law that shields a lent work from being seized by anyone with a claim to legal ownership while the art is on display here. In recent years, though, American museum directors have come to fear that this safeguard has eroded, and that foreign museums, dreading entanglement in costly ownership battles, are more hesitant to make loans.

Faulty Towers
Nation    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A few years ago, when I was still teaching at Yale, I was approached by a student who was interested in going to graduate school. She had her eye on Columbia; did I know someone there she could talk with? I did, an old professor of mine. But when I wrote to arrange the introduction, he refused to even meet with her. "I won't talk to students about graduate school anymore," he explained. "Going to grad school's a suicide mission." The policy may be extreme, but the feeling is universal. Most professors I know are willing to talk with students about pursuing a PhD, but their advice comes down to three words: don’t do it. More

Should Artists Get Royalties on Resales? California Judge Says No
Thomson Reuters    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
There's a peculiarity in US copyright law that must drive painters and sculptors nuts. When writers, composers, photographers, and filmmakers obtain copyrights, they're entitled to royalties every time their work is sold. Not painters or sculptors. Under the US Copyright Act (in contrast to many copyright regimes in Europe), once a piece of art is sold all rights to the physical work belong to the buyer. There is only one exception: the 1977 California Resale Royalties Act, a so-called droit de suite law that grants artists a continuing interest in their work when it changes hands. More

Projects Aims to Build Online Hub for Archival Materials
Chronicle of Higher Education    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In death, as in life, people don't always leave their papers in order. Letters, manuscripts, and other pieces of evidence wind up scattered among different archives, leading researchers on a paper chase as they try to hunt down what they need for their work. "It can be hugely frustrating—especially when you make a journey cross-country to an archive, and then discover the piece you really wanted must be somewhere else (or, God forbid, rotting away in a landfill)," says Robert Townsend, deputy director of the American Historical Association, in an email interview. Chasing after distributed historical records is so common that "any historian who has not suffered from that problem can't be working very hard," he wrote. More

In Murals' Corner
Wall Street Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Art preservation is tricky even under ideal circumstances, which generally involve close controls for light, temperature, humidity, and other hazards. Eliminate those and you have some idea of the challenge that street-mural preservation faces. The only surviving exterior work in the US by the renowned Mexican muralist David Alfaro Siqueiros, Los Angeles's América Tropical (1932), is only now receiving a roof. Ironically, its longevity is due to a paint-over that preserved it from the ravages of nature. Most murals, in a world of unfriendly ordinances and inevitable shifts in the urban landscape, are not so fortunate. Happily, a number of national and local organizations have recently mobilized to ensure that the preservation of murals need not be any more difficult than rain, snow, and sun already render it.

Jobs Few, Grads Flock to Unpaid Internships
New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Confronting the worst job market in decades, many college graduates who expected to land paid jobs are turning to unpaid internships to try to get a foot in an employer's door. While unpaid postcollege internships have long existed in the film and nonprofit worlds, they have recently spread to fashion houses, book and magazine publishers, marketing companies, public-relations firms, art galleries, talent agencies—even to some law firms.

Quest for College Accountability Produces Demand for Yet More Student Data
Chronicle of Higher Education    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Despite growing pressure from policy makers and prospective students for colleges to prove their value, the institutions have often insisted that their unique missions make simple measurements forbiddingly difficult. Now they have documented proof. After three years of studying ideas for measuring institutional quality, an expert panel assembled by the National Research Council delivered a 192-page report that indicates just how hard it is to do that.
