    Wandering Eye: The future of art museums, President Obama shirks FOIA, and more
    The spring issue of the journal Democracy has a¬†pretty fascinating essay by Michael O'Hare on the purpose and future of art museums. It's a long, multifaceted read, but one of his main points is that "The purpose of an art museum is more, better engagement with art. Anything a museum does that can't be connected back to this goal is peripheral and incidental." One way that museums are failing to fulfill this purpose, in O'Hare's eyes, is the huge number of artworks that museums hang onto but don't actually exhibit—"For every object on view, another 20 are in storage; almost none will ever be displayed," he writes. Part of the reason why museums amass huge volumes of work that they might not display is because of a rule in the museum directors' code of ethics that says museums cannot ever sell art except to buy more art—but O'Hare argues, "What the no-sale provision is good for is to protect the big old museums [like the Metropolitan Museum of Art], which have collections far larger than they can ever show, from even thinking about having to share [with smaller museums] . . . It's about managerial comfort and institutional prestige, and has nothing to do with the public interest." There are plenty of other interesting arguments, too, on digitizing art, exhibit design, and admission charges. A crucial read for anyone with an interest in arts policy.

    Jeffrey Epstein is a name you might not have heard before—at least not before last week, when salacious allegations of underaged sex slaves consorting with Britain's Prince Andrew (and Alan Dershowitz?!) surfaced. Now it's all about Epstein, a...
