Questions to Ask before Applying to an Artist Opportunity
New York Foundation for the Arts
Breaking into the art world is a difficult task, but it doesn't have to be. To be a successful artist, you must be determined, hardworking, and passionate about your field of work. It also helps to understand how the art world does business: how to find the opportunity that is the best fit for you, how to avoid predatory scams, and how to build your résumé for the future.

Before Applying to an Artist Opportunity: Beware the Ides of Arts
New York Foundation for the Arts
One of the biggest problems facing artists today is the multitude of scams and schemes, especially those on the internet. And no, it's not just the foreign princes looking to transfer money. Every artist wants to be discovered and make it big, but that doesn't mean you should hastily leap into opportunity without looking first.

Is It Okay to Haggle with an Art Gallery?
Burnaway
There's a painting that I'd like to purchase from a smaller gallery here in town, but it's out of my budget. Not by much, but in order to buy it, the price needs to come down. Can I try to negotiate with the gallery? I come from the business side of things, so that's a normal practice for my realm, but I don't want to anger anyone, or seem rude.

Grant Dispute Throws an Unwritten Rule of Academic Poaching out the Window
Chronicle of Higher Education
Among research universities a longstanding gentlemen's agreement has held that a scientist who moves from one institution to another is allowed to carry any grant support along to his or her new home. Now, with universities counting every dollar, that bit of protocol may become a quaint courtesy of days gone by.

Saying Yes
Inside Higher Ed
While it's true that new hires need to learn to say no so they don't get overwhelmed and fall behind on their scholarship, it's also important to decide which opportunities to accept or decline. What are the offers worth saying yes to? When might saying no really be declining a valuable opportunity? Are there ways that saying yes to certain opportunities might help to advance, rather than take time away from, your own research agenda?

Where Does Innovative Teaching Come From?
Faculty Focus
There's a long-standing tradition of informal sharing of pedagogical innovation among K–12 teachers and a whole line of research on this phenomenon, which is known as teacher leadership. The same type of informal faculty leadership exists in higher education as well, but there is very little research on this topic, according to Pete Turner, education faculty member and director of the Teacher Education Institute at Estrella Mountain Community College.

Why Collect Artist's Books and Zines?
Artslant
The Brooklyn-based publisher Blonde Art Books recently organized its third annual Bushwick Art Book and Zine Fair (BABZ), a three-day event featuring a few dozen independent publishers, alongside workshops and performances. The presence of something like BABZ is not particularly surprising: a market for do-it-yourself printed matter still exists, whether at art-book fairs, at stores like Printed Matter, or in university library collections. What drives collectors to keep these venues running? What, or who, fuels the market?

In Conversation: Peter Schjeldahl with Jarrett Earnest
Brooklyn Rail
In the pantheon of art writers, Peter Schjeldahl holds a special place as one of the greatest living critics. As an art critic for the New Yorker since 1998, he is alive to the nuanced movements of his own feelings, which he charts over the course of each review. This summer he met with the Rail's Jarrett Earnest to discuss the interconnections between seeing, feeling, and writing.
