The Associated Press via Bloomberg Businessweek    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Fisk University can sell a share of its Stieglitz art collection, but the bulk of the proceeds must go to an endowment for the display of the artwork, a judge ruled. To fend off bankruptcy, the historically black university wanted to sell a 50 percent stake in the collection for $30 million to the Crystal Bridges Museum, arguing that maintaining and displaying the 101-piece collection donated by Georgia O'Keeffe is a financial burden. Judge Ellen Hobbs Lyle said yes but $20 million must fund the exhibition endowment. More

Permanent versus Temporary Public Art Is Not the Issue
The Art Newspaper    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Last month Anne Pasternak presented the case for commissioning temporary rather than permanent public art, thus avoiding what she perceived as the "problems" associated with permanent art in the public realm. I would argue that permanent public art can be, in its way, as challenging and controversial as temporary art interventions and, when professionally curated and managed, should not present a permanent "problem" any more than a carefully commissioned work of architecture might do so.

a Literal Art Form

ARTINFO    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Locating affordable real estate in New York is without doubt an art, as any artist looking for studio space in this mercilessly competitive city will tell you, but few take that notion to heart as seriously as Stephanie Diamond, who puts roofs over the heads of members of the creative class as her artistic practice. As the New York Times reports, the thirty-five-year-old artist has for seven years operated the Listings Project, a free weekly email that catalogues available apartments and workspaces that might be of interest to other artists.

Textbook Rentals No Cure for Rising College Costs
The Cabin    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

The Boston Globe    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Of the approximately 750 oil portraits that grace the libraries, dining commons, and undergraduate residences of Harvard University, the nation's oldest, roughly 690 were of white men, as of a 2002 inventory by the curator of the university's portrait collection.

Gothamist    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
After it was announced that a massive (and illegal) art project, dubbed The Underbelly Project, had been mounted in an undisclosed abandoned New York subway station, it was inevitable that people would try to find the works. The Metropolitan Transit Authority promised to better secure the stations, and indeed, some trespassers were arrested. But at least two of them got these cell phone photos of the pieces — many of them "dissed" by more veteran subway trespassers. More
