Pixabay - Public Domain Images ArtServe Dronestagram : images prises à partir de drones About the Walters Art Museum You are invited to discover some of the most talented artists from around the globe and across the ages. The Walters Art Museum is one of only a few museums in the world to present a panorama of art from the third millennium B.C. to the early 20th century. The thousands of treasures range from mummies to arms and armor, from old master paintings to Art Nouveau jewelry. The Walters' Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Ethiopian and Western Medieval art collections are among the finest in the nation, as are the museum's holdings of Renaissance and Asian art and a spectacular reserve of illuminated manuscripts and rare books. The Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, Maryland is internationally renowned for its collection of art, which was amassed substantially by two men, William and Henry Walters, and eventually bequeathed to the City of Baltimore.

Symbols of Power: Adinkras and the Nature of Reality Physicists have long sought to describe the universe in terms of equations. Now, James Gates explains how research on a class of geometric symbols known as adinkras could lead to fresh insights into the theory of supersymmetry — and perhaps even the very nature of reality. Complex ideas, complex shapes Adinkras — geometric objects that encode mathematical relationships between supersymmetric particles — are named after symbols that represent wise sayings in West African culture. This adinkra is called nea onnim no sua a, ohu," which translates as "he who does not know can become knowledgeable through learning." In the land of theoretical physics, equations have always been king. "The modern era of equation prediction began with Maxwell in 1861, continued through the development of Einstein's equations of general relativity in 1916, and reached its first peak in the 1920s with the Schrödinger and Dirac equations. Yet equations are not the only story. If you knew SUSY like we know SUSY… 5.

New Robert Rauschenberg Digital Collection Lets You Download Free High-Res Images of the Artist's Work After the waning of abstract expressionism, Robert Rauschenberg’s exuberant prints, paintings, sculptures, and three-dimensional collages he called “Combines” rejuvenated the New York art world and helped bring pop art to prominence, anticipating Warhol’s experiments. And now students of twentieth-century American art can connect with all of the artist’s work in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection without setting foot in the Bay area, thanks to SFMOMA’s Rauschenberg Research Project, which allows users to download high res images of the museum’s Rauschenbergs. Research materials—including commentary, interviews, essays, and more—accompany each image. Clicking on the main link for each image will send you to a page with a lengthy description. Scrolling down to the bottom of the page, you’ll find individual links for each of the associated files and an omnibus link for all of them at once. via Metafilter Related Content: Rauschenberg Erases De Kooning

Find OER | Open Professionals Education Network CC licensed (BY) Flickr photo shared by David Amsler modified by Paul Stacey Reusing existing Open Educational Resources (OER) can save significant time and effort. The OPEN partners recommend TAACCCT grantees invest up-front time finding OER to reuse rather than starting development of new educational resources right away. A significant benefit of OER is that they provide source material to build your development efforts around. No need to invest development effort in creating something that already exists. OER come in a wide variety of types. The page below will help you find openly licensed media elements to use within your courses. OER also exist as distinctly education content such as full courses, workshops, textbooks, tests and assessments. The page below will help you find openly licensed education content you can use in whole or in part. It is unlikely that you will find OER that perfectly fit your needs. Open Educational Resources are distributed across the Internet. 1. 2. 3.
