Street Artist Posts Signs Across Country Reserving Vacant Lots for Trump Internment Camps

The art of learning: Why art history might be the most important subject you could study today.

The art of learning: Why art history might be the most important subject you could study today

This would have cut it off at the knees and crippled it as a field of study altogether, because in the UK, high school students must choose their study subject when applying to university — if they’ve had no art history in high school, they are unlikely to choose it at uni. But after much protest from the liberal intellectual establishment, art history was “saved” and will stay on British curricula. If the cultured British nearly did away with art history, then what hope have we Americans? There has been much discussion of the advantages of humanities versus STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). The Best Digital Podcast Recorders on the Market.

The focal point of the exhibition is a rust-brown powder staining the gallery’s floor. It’s a pretty sizable stain, to say the least, yet the sense of scale Turner’s exhibition commands is something of a paradox. Located in a former church, the Gothic immensity of König Galerie’s St. Agnes wing precedes Turner’s work and will remain there after the show is taken down.
