Independent Scholars: A Nomadic Lot
The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In 1992, I quit my teaching job at the University of Arkansas, put everything into storage, cashed in my life savings—a stupendous $10,000—and moved to Rome to begin the first phase of research for a project that has become my life's work. My money ran out nine months later, but by then the project had begun to take on a life of its own, and I had become an independent scholar. More

Irish Artist Bids to Copyright Guevara Image
Reuters    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Jim Fitzpatrick produced the classic red-and-black print of the long-haired Che wearing a soldier's beret with a single star in 1968 and distributed it copyright-free for use by revolutionary groups in Europe. It was quickly adopted by left-wing students, whose t-shirts and posters helped turn the image into a global sign of rebellion. But the image of the Marxist revolutionary, who helped bring Fidel Castro to power in 1959, has since been coopted by makers of mugs, baseball caps, and even lingerie. More

Idea to Force Iowa to Sell Its $150 Million Jackson Pollock
Painting Dies

The Des Moines Register    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail
The idea to force the University of Iowa to sell its $150 million Jackson Pollock painting has officially died in the legislature. The reason: The issue has become so cumbersomely emotional that reaching consensus is unlikely, the legislator pushing for the sale said. "Right now the legislature needs to focus on passing a budget for Iowans that meets their priority needs and doesn't spend more than we take in," said Rep. Scott Raecker, who introduced the bill.

Mural and Art in Academe
Inside Higher Ed    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When he was growing up in Hawaii, Sean O'Harrow took art classes at the Honolulu Academy of Arts, and he would wander the galleries before or after his classes. One afternoon he might gaze at a van Gogh. Another day, he would "visit China" by walking through galleries devoted to Chinese art. "I fell in love as a kid with a painting by Whistler, and I thought that was normal. I thought all museums had van Gogh paintings. I thought looking at art was normal," said O'Harrow, the new director of the University of Iowa Museum of Art. O'Harrow is all too aware that not everyone thinks it is normal to feel passionate about art. More

House Preparing to Announce Deeper Cuts to FY 2011 Appropriations
National Humanities Alliance    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
House GOP leaders are preparing to release a bill that would cut $100 billion in federal spending for the current fiscal year (FY 2011). Earlier this week, the House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers announced plans to introduce a Continuing Resolution that would reduce spending by a lower target of $74 billion below President Barack Obama's 2011 budget request. The earlier, less-aggressive measure would have cut $12.2 million from the National Endowment for the Humanities, reducing the agency's funding from $167 million (the FY 2010 enacted level) to $155 million.

Congress Considering FY11 Funding; Anti-Museum Amendments
Are Possible

American Association of Museums    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Last week the US House of Representatives was debating a bill, HR 1, to fund the federal government for the rest of the current fiscal year (FY 2011), which began on October 1, 2010. Nearly six hundred amendments proposing cuts to numerous agencies and programs were filed, which means that they could be formally offered as the House continues consideration of the bill. Several of them target museums. One amendment (#471) would prohibit the use of funds provided by the bill to fund nonfederal museums, and another (#35) would defund the Institute of Museum and Library Services for the remainder of FY 11.
