Fewer Young Blacks and Latinos Attend Arts Events: NEA Study
Los Angeles Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A new analysis of survey data compiled by the National Endowment for the Arts since 1982 shows that blacks and Latinos have suffered from a collapse in arts education, and that their young-adult rates of arts attendance have declined far more than for whites. Childhood arts education "has played such a vital developing the potential audience" for the arts, the researchers from the University of Chicago wrote.

Supreme Court of the United States Blog    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Ignoring the federal government's plea to stay away from the issue, the Supreme Court agreed to rule on a core issue of copyright law: when, if ever, does Congress have the constitutional power to revive copyright protection once it has expired for a creative work? That issue arises in the one new case the Court granted: Golan, et al., v. Holder (Attorney General), et al. A decision in the case is expected in the new term that starts next October 3. More

The Association Press via The Washington Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Hinduism is the world's third largest religion and its oldest continuously practiced one, so it's somewhat surprising there has never been a major museum exhibition on Vishnu, one of its most important deities.

Negotiate Like a Professor
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
For many academics, their first full-time teaching position is, in fact, their first significant employment of any sort. My own illustrious record of employment—besides teaching assistant and adjunct—before accepting a tenure-track teaching position consisted of babysitter, newspaper boy, and summer camp counselor. Since many other academics may have similar work histories, they will no doubt be caught unaware when negotiating their first full-time position. In light of some of my own blunders when it came to negotiation time, I thought it would be helpful to those currently on the job market to offer the following rules to negotiating like a pro. More

Bloomberg    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
China has overtaken the United Kingdom to become the world's second-largest art market after the United States, according to research from the Netherlands-based European Fine Art Foundation.

The Netherlands-based European Fine Art Foundation released the full survey three days before the world's largest art and antiques fair, TEFAF, previews in the Dutch city of Maastricht. More

Myanmar's Young Artists and Activists
Smithsonian Magazine    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The New Zero Gallery and Art Studio looks out over a scruffy street of coconut palms, noodle stalls, and cybercafés in Yangon (Rangoon), the capital of Myanmar, the Southeast Asian country formerly known as Burma. The two-story space is filled with easels, dripping brushes, and half-finished canvases covered with swirls of paint. A framed photograph of Aung San Suu Kyi, the Burmese opposition leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate who was released from seven years of house arrest this past November, provides the only hint of the gallery’s political sympathies.
