Tax Rules Encourage Gifts of Art from Collectors, but Not from Artists Themselves
The Missoulian    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
This past summer, nationally renowned color-field artist Anne Appleby wanted to gift some $80,000 worth of paintings to the Missoula Art Museum. If these had been paintings that she had purchased from other artists, she could have claimed the full value as a charitable donation on her taxes, likely resulting in a significant reduction in her taxes. But because Appleby had painted the works herself, she would have only been allowed to deduct the cost of the paints and canvases on her taxes. The gift didn't happen. More

Kicking In for Art Projects
The Los Angeles Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When Los Angeles performer Selene Luna applied for a grant in 2007 through the Franklin Furnace Fund, it took nine months and packets of paperwork to receive her money—a small bounty of $3,000. But last month, looking for financing for her online soap opera, Selene's Hollywood Confidential, she turned to a less traditional fundraising source: It took her 30 days to meet her $5,000 goal. In fact, she even raised a little more. More

The Observer    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
For a young art conservator with a love of Italian painting there could be no bigger thrill than the chance to work on a genuine Florentine masterpiece.

Fisk Rejects New Proposal over Art Collection
The Associated Press via The Tennessean    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Fisk University rejected a proposal to keep its Stieglitz art collection on display at the school. The Nashville university said in a statement that the proposal Friday by the state attorney general is a "scheme which fails to address Fisk's survival." Fisk is asking for court permission to sell a 50 percent share in the collection, donated by the late painter Georgia O'Keeffe. The historically black university has argued it could face bankruptcy without the $30 million generated by the sale to the Crystal Bridges Museum in Arkansas. The school has also argued it is a financial burden to maintain and display the 101-piece collection. More

Library Inc.
The Chronicle Review    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
From industry-backed research to CEO-style executive salaries and perquisites, the influence of corporate America on universities has been the subject of much popular and scholarly scrutiny. University libraries have largely escaped that attention. Yet libraries, the intellectual heart of universities, have become perhaps the most commercialized academic area within universities, with troubling implications for the future of higher education.

Danish Artists' Exhibition Cancelled over Royal Orgy Cartoon
The Art Newspaper    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A cartoon depicting the Danish royal family taking part in an orgy has led to the cancellation of a retrospective of works by satirical Danish artist duo Surrend (consisting of Jan Egesborg and Pia Bertelsen). "These people just want to attract attention, nothing else," said Thomas Bloch Ravn, the director of Den Gamle By in Aarhus. "It turned out that I cannot trust them and therefore I decided it's better not to collaborate with them." More

US to Send Visual Artists as Cultural Ambassadors
The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In recent years the State Department has relied on performing artists to act as cultural ambassadors, sending dancers and musicians around the world to show people that America is more than just Hollywood movies, McEverything, and two drawn-out wars. But under a new $1 million program, the Obama administration is planning to expand its cultural diplomacy programs to include visual artists like painters and sculptors, who will be asked next year to create public art projects in 15 foreign countries.

The Proto-Surrealist
The Wall Street Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The late, legendary S. Lane Faison Jr., professor emeritus of art history at Williams College, responded to over-the-top works of art with a vigorous "Hoo boy! Whoops a daisy!" He tended to reserve this evocative phrase for High Baroque extravaganzas and the apses of 18th-century Austrian churches, but I suspect he might have applied it to Arcimboldo, 1526-1593: Nature and Fantasy, the small, engaging exhibition dedicated to one of the most peculiar artists of the 16th century, on view at Washington's National Gallery of Art.
