Isaac Asimov Mulls “How Do People Get New Ideas?”

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Inspiring --  for all sorts of creative types.


I especially enjoyed the parts about designing creative environments, feeling foolish in a culture that isn't exactly welcoming to creative types, and comparing the productive guiding of creative folks to that of a psychoanalyst.

of art wastes away and becomes lustreless in surroundings where it has a price but not a value. It radiates only when surrounded by love. It is bound to wilt in a world where the rich have no time and the cultivated no money. But it never harmonizes with borrowed greatness.

India's 'missing' women cast shadow over national art fair

India's 'missing' women cast shadow over national art fair | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

"India Art Fair installation exposes the country's stark gender divisions by paying tribute to millions of women who never were.

 

Hulking figures cast in black steel towered over the India Art Fair as it opened on Friday, with the eerie silhouettes representing the country's millions of "missing" women.

 

The outdoor installation, M.I.S.S.I.N.G. by artist Leena Kejriwal, is a visual response to the growing gender gap in India, which has led to severe imbalances in parts of the country. Fuelled by sex-selective abortion, infanticide and the death of girls through neglect, the issue forms part of a national debate about women's rights triggered by fresh scrutiny of sexual violence."

America's heroic ART COLLECTORS: Rag tag bag of experts who turned WW2 soldiers and inspired George Clooney's latest movie

America's heroic ART COLLECTORS: Rag tag bag of experts who turned WW2 soldiers and inspired George Clooney's latest movie | For Art's Sake-1 | Scoop.it

As the Nazi's razed their way across Europe they looted the world's greatest works of art so that they could realize Adolf Hitler's twisted vision for his eponymous 'Fühermuseum' - which would be built in his hometown of Linz, Austria.


With much of the artwork hostage behind enemy lines, a tiny British-American taskforce made up of museum directors, art historians and curators was created and charged with saving over 1,000 years of culture from the maniacal grasp of Hitler and his cronies.


Dubbed the Monuments Men, the rag-tag group was co-opted into the armed forces and sent into Europe following D-Day in 1944 on the greatest treasure hunt of all time, to recover and return the pieces of art to their rightful owners and reverse the cultural attack of an entire continent.

Peter Max strikes again! A lovely poster that tries to reflect the mentality that fan-goers should embody while enjoying a festival.
