Get Ready for A Summer of Arts with The Space. The BBC and Arts Council England have teamed up to launch a new service for mobile, tablet, PC and connected TV called The Space.

Get Ready for A Summer of Arts with The Space

The service is also available on digital television in the UK and is accessible via the BBC’s ‘Red Button‘ function for TV too. The experimental idea is aimed at allowing artists and cultural organisations to capture and distribute their own work on the platform. The Space is the result of a four-year Public Value Partnership between the BBC and Arts Council England. The initial idea was to create ‘a new era of public engagement in the arts’, and to build digital capacity and skills within the arts sector.

The service runs from May 1 until October 31st to provide coverage and engagement with the arts throughout the Summer. Users can expect to see a wealth of newly accessible archive material from the Arts Council England, including film, images and further information. Arts 2012 – live, free and on demand.

Radiohead in Grand Rapids? A longshot, but Calvin College puts in offer to land tour stop

Ultra-innovative English rock band Radiohead kicks off its much-hyped 2012 U.S. tour in February, with 10 concert dates announced this week to entice its devoted fans. Calvin College wants Grand Rapids added to the tour schedule. Student activities director Ken Heffner said he's actually “put in an offer” to book the multi-platinum-selling rock band for a campus concert during its 2012 tour. But he conceded it's unlikely Thom Yorke and his Radiohead bandmates will swing by for a show (which I speculate would probably have to be held in the college's Spoelhof Fieldhouse Complex, a facility that held 2,100-plus for a concert by The Decemberists earlier this year).

“We are making an offer even though we have little chance,” he told me. So far, the 2012 Radiohead tour doesn't include any Michigan dates. I say, give Heffner credit for giving this idea a shot. Tiny People's Wonderful World. Annekejong:

Leonard Weisgard's Stunning 1949 Alice in Wonderland Illustrations. By Maria Popova A vibrant mid-century homage to one of the most beloved children’s books of all time.

Leonard Weisgard's Stunning 1949 Alice in Wonderland Illustrations

It’s no secret I have a soft spot for obscure vintage children’s book illustration, especially by famous artists or of famous works. Spotted on the lovely Vintage Kids’ Books My Kids Love, here’s a beautiful 1949 edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, illustrated by Leonard Weisgard — only the second version of the Lewis Carroll classic, and the first with color illustrations UPDATE: Reader Mark Burstein, an avid Alice collector, kindly points out there have been multiple editions before Weisgard’s, including some in color.
