Los Angeles Times
As the National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Endowment for the Arts celebrate their fiftieth anniversaries, they are still trying to climb out of the cellar, at least financially.

Does the Public Have a Right to Culture?
Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros
What do we mean when we say that artists and their heirs have a right to remuneration for the artist's creativity? Conversely, what do we mean when we say that the public has a right to culture? Which public? Which culture? And is this "right" or "non-right" to be mediated solely through the law?

The Informal Economy and the Global Art Market
SFAQ
It is difficult to imagine a reason to keep artworks in a free port unless there is speculation going on. If you are a collector of fine art, you want to be able to see and to appreciate what you own. But if you are a speculator, all you need is storage since you are betting that the work is going to increase in value.

Solving the Solvents
Just Paint
Solvents are used in oil painting for various reasons. In the first layers they are frequently meant to make the paint washier—often a necessary step in the painting process for some artists. With thinner and more fluid paint, one is able to sketch or conjure the gesture that breathes life into a blank canvas and informs the subsequent layers.

Why the Visual Artists Rights Act Is Failing
Artsy
The federal Visual Artists Rights Act (VARA), enacted in 1990 in the wake of the removal of Richard Serra's Tilted Arc, was supposed to remedy a long series of conflicts between property owners and artists.

Humanities Majors' Salaries
Inside Higher Ed
Major in English and expect to live with Mom and Dad for life. That's the stereotype constantly reinforced by reports on the hot job prospects for nurses or code writers or various other positions for which practical training is seen as the route to economic success. But a new report shows that graduates with degrees in the humanities earn much more than the average for all American workers, challenging those who suggest that a degree in the humanities is a waste, at least financially.

And it's one of the most important questions we hope our Academic JobTracker project can help answer. If you don't get a job in your first year on the market, should you stay the course and take another swing next hiring season? Or is it already time to explore other career options?
