Movie review: Greg Kinnear offers thoughtful, real glimpse into 'Heaven'
Appleton Post Crescent
This isn't a movie about blind faith. This is a movie about trying to figure out what faith is, what it means and how it affects us.
Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's insight:
It’s certainly accurate to put “Heaven Is for Real” in the faith-based film category.But — and this is not to belittle recent films like “Son of God” or “God’s Not Dead” — it also works outside the sanctuary, as it were. Although it has some serious flaws, it rises above genre fare, thanks to Greg Kinnear’s intriguing performance and the work of a good cast.Click to read more and watch trailer.

Egg tempera with oil glazing over Permalba on a gesso ground on linen mounted to wood panels with a honeycomb interior.

I love it.

America Today was Benton's first major mural commission, and remains his best-known work. The ten-panel mural is imbued with the spirit of the Machine Age, and offers us a great opportunity to enrich our narrative of twentieth-century American art. It arrives at an optimal moment as we begin to consider new ideas for our galleries of modern art.

Michael Britt's comment, April 16, 12:11 PM
Here's one thing that I think is not addressed well in this video or indeed on other resources that address curation: the Explain part of her FACETS acronym. I agree that ideally the curator should explain why any particular item of the collection is included in the curation, but also I think it's important to explain how one item relates to another. I don't see how this can be done with any of the curation tools I have seen. How can the curator effectively explain to the visitor what the relationship is between different items in the collection in a way that's easy for the visitor to follow? Right now it seems to me that the curator would have to say in his/her notes, "This item is similar to the one I added to the collection back in January....take a look at...go back to..." etc. That's awkward and clumsy. Any solutions to this?
