- William Poundstone asks how much an art museum visit should cost — and has some ideas for improving the way most museums handle admissions.
- I think that one of the fun parts of being an artist would be having the opportunity to do un-categorizeable projects such as this.
- Smart art museums share pictures of dramatic installations in progress: The Albright-Knox’s Nancy Rubins; the Nelson-Atkins’ (mutton-chopped) Roxy Paine. (Also, deinstallation.)
- The NEA’s blog spotlights some random awesomeness from the Archives of American Art.
- Speaking of the Archives, remembering Freedom Summer via a letter from Ben Shahn to Andrew Goodman’s mother Carolyn. (Other way to remember: This fast-paced account of the summer by Bruce Watson. It’s just out in paperback.)
- Visiting Nancy Holt’s Sun Tunnels as the artist intended: on solstice.
- How did I not know that Tacita Dean just made a film-portrait of Cy Twombly titled “Edwin Parker?” (If you don’t ‘get’ the title, be sure to click through…)
- Jonathan Jones is enjoying Robert Hughes’ latest. It’ll be released in the US in the fall.
- Groundswell has been kicking ass. Instead of sending you to one post, I give you the whole site.
