Some stories that have us wondering this week:
- Perhaps these artists weren’t too clear on the definition of temptation.
- Perhaps this artist should have consulted his neighbors before embarking on his latest project.
- Perhaps legendary editor, publisher, and anti-censorship champion Barney Rosset should have stipulated what to do with his giant mural.
- Perhaps you can score higher than us in naming these famous paintings based on a small detail (we got one wrong).
- Perhaps after their Dürer and Rembrandt prints went missing the Boston Public Library should have looked a bit harder before triggering a criminal investigation and the resignation of the institution’s president.
- Perhaps dropping museum admission fees is not as straightforward as it seems.
- Perhaps this device is wearing thin, so we’ll drop it. Check out the story (and some great images!) of what is being called the largest collection of crowdsourced sketchbooks in the world.
- Good news for fashion-loving data nerds: the Metropolitan Museum of Art Archives is making 136 linear feet (!) of historical records and administrative files of The Costume Institute, one of the world’s leading costume collections, available for research.
