First and foremost: exciting news in the art department where I teach. We will begin blogging regularly, as faculty, on the department blog this fall. We have had two meetings over the summer (and plenty of impromptu conversations) and are excited about the possibility and opportunity to put our ideas out there and invite comments. The blog, of course, is not just for art students at our institution, but, rather, for the entire community. We invite your lurking and participation.
Second: I have been struck by a number of articles and videos that I have come across online. Here's a few of them:
- no gender-based salary gap (really?)
- a resolution over Schiele's Portrait of Wally, scrupulously detailed by Judith H. Dobrzynski and Lee Rosenbaum (do a search on each of their sites to find relevant articles and posts
- Detroit's prospects of public art and DIY
- the story of Christian the lion
Finally, way to go Jonathan on that first teaching gig, Hannah on completing your M.A. in Education, Rachel on getting into the principal/leadership program, Amber for your work at the Kentucky Arts Council, Ashley on your work as a part-time architectural historian. I am proud of each of you and many, many other former students. Please keep in touch!
