Running May 11-13, the Gathering hosts a wide variety of events, including concerts, lectures, discussions, consultations, and a signature innovation: composer-performer “speed dating.” The theme of this year’s Gathering is “support,” a subject keynote speaker Steven Schick – a percussionist, conductor, author, and organizer – took up with customary insight and poetic grace.

In conceptual installations that lambaste threats to humanity, the Chinese artist often amasses thousands of objects to represent human lives—like in 2009, when 5,000 backpacks at Munich’s Haus der Kunst paid tribute to Chinese schoolchildren who died in the Sichuan earthquake. “Ai Weiwei’s significance as an artist has come from his identification with those in our society who he sees as having no voice—whether it was the children killed in the Sichuan earthquake or, more recently, refugees fleeing from unrest in the Middle East‎,” says Melissa Chiu, director of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. “His interest in making art about these issues puts him at the center of global conversations on a number of vital topics.”

And I hate it. I can't keep up with it, I forget to give a sticker or drop a marble (I've lost too many along the way) and it just ends up being more work with less results. For me. For some of you, it may work beautifully. But you might not have that trouble with consistency like I do. Visual investigations, visual literacy, art. inquiry based learning.

An Illustrated Guide to Guy Debord’s ‘The Society of the Spectacle’ Guy Debord’s (1931–1994) best-known work, La société du spectacle (The Society of the Spectacle) (1967), is a polemical and prescient indictment of our image-saturated consumer culture. The book examines the “Spectacle,” Debord’s term for the everyday manifestation of capitalist-driven phenomena; advertising, television, film, and celebrity.

But most people learn concepts better when they are also presented in other, nonlinguistic ways: For the most part, this means visually or through some kind of movement. If you’ve ever heard a guy stop in the middle of an explanation and say Hold on, let me draw you a picture, that guy is getting ready to sit you down for a big heaping plate of nonlinguistic representation. If you’re a teacher, you should know that nonlinguistic representation can help you make any concept stick better. Say you’re having trouble getting your fourth graders to understand the relationship between the sun, the earth, and the seasons. World needs to hear about successes in #deeperlearning schools.

Revisiting abstract artist Norman Lewis. 7 Hidden Art Secrets That Were Uncovered With Technology. Paintings by the masters da Vinci, Rembrandt, Goya, and Caravaggio are often accepted as absolute works. Today, we use mobile devices to capture these images, compressing them onto tiny screens, and remixing them into snapchats, selfies or light simulated paintings. But technology can also reveal the secrets that lie just beneath a work's surface. Using a variety of scientific techniques and advanced digital imaging, today's scientists and art historians can non-invasively probe artworks for the secrets to artists' lives and processes.
