Largest multi-touch screen in U.S. installed at Cleveland Art Museum — from mashable.com by Lauren Indvik

Excerpt:

Museums are places we often go to connect with our pasts. The Cleveland Museum of Art , however, is also giving us a glimpse of the future.

The museum recently installed what it claims is the nation’s largest multi-touch screen, where as many as 16 visitors at a time can explore the 3,500 works in the permanent collection on display. Pieces are presented as thumbnails on a 40-foot-wide moving grid. Visitors can click on individual images to pull up more information, and to discover similar items by category (such as African art), artist, medium or period.

I’ve pulled some of the images from this video into one still piece. Amazing use of light and projection; creates different moods, makes Christ and his disciples around the table appear to be 3D at different points…

10 salient studies on the arts in education — from onlinecolleges.net

Excerpt:

A fine arts education — including music, theater, drawing, painting, or sculpture — whether in practice or theory, has been a part of any well-rounded curriculum for decades — but that may be changing.  Many schools today are cutting back or eliminating their art programs due to budget constraints.  It is estimated that by the end of this year, more than 25% of public high schools will have completely dismantled them.  These stats aren’t just bad news for teachers working in the arts.  Numerous studies done over the past decade have demonstrated the amazing benefits of such an integral education facet.  Students who don’t have access to art classes may not only miss out on a key creative outlet, but might also face greater difficulty mastering core subjects, higher dropout rates and more disciplinary problems.

You don’t have to take our word for it — you can read the studies yourself.  Here, we’ve listed some of the biggest on the arts in education conducted over the past decade.  Taken on by research organizations, college professors and school districts themselves, the studies reveal the power of art to inspire, motivate and educate today’s students.  And, of course, demonstrate what a disservice many schools are doing by undervaluing such an integral part of their education and development (emphasis DSC).

Art Through Time: A Global View — from Annenberg Media

“Annenberg Media’s newest course resource Art Through Time: A Global View has premiered on Learner.org at www.learner.org/courses/globalart/ . The course materials cover art history throughout time and in many cultures across the globe by examining hundreds of paintings, drawings, sculptures, photos, and objects used for domestic or ceremonial purposes. The 13 video programs with accompanying online text units take a thematic approach by considering how, for example, portraits were created to convey political power, wealth or to call attention to the hierarchy of the social order. More than 125 scholars, art curators, and artists comment on the works and the themes and more than 250 can be viewed and sorted on the course web site. ”
