Nut Up Or Shut Up: The Artist As Critic

It is a strange relationship that exists between artists and critics, with critics reliant upon artists for their prima materia, while artists begrudgingly covet the praise and recognition of the critics. With the rising popularity of art blogs, however, full-time critics are no longer the sole purveyors of this attention, and some of their duties are being assumed by art bloggers and fellow artists.

It’s like…

…kicking off black history month with an Amos n Andy marathon on the radio.

So how does Denver Public Schools mark this august occasion? By offering a lunch menu on January 15 — the same day the city hosts the 25th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Business Social Responsibility Awards — that’s billed as "In Honor of M.L.King," and features "Southern Style" chicken, collard greens and sweet potatoes.

babbage's difference engine

Charles Babbage, the man whom many consider to be the father of modern computing, never got to complete any of his life’s work. The Victorian gentleman was a brilliant mathematician, but he wasn’t very good at politics and fundraising, so he never got the financial backing to finish any of his elaborate machine designs. For decades, even his fans weren’t certain whether his computing machines would have worked. But… Read More
