James 1: Below are pictures from James Turrell's Stone Sky (2005) in which one submerges themselves underwater to emerge in one of Turrell's site specific Skyspaces. Um, can you say AMAZING?

James 2: I recently read this article by Professor James Abruzzo about leadership deficits in the arts community and the socio-political/economic conditions surrounding them. Sometimes academic writing fails to examine the underlying sources of a problem and providing attainable solutions to them, but Mr. Abruzzo does so in a way that is accessible and clearly written. This is an excellent read for anyone interested in taking a position in the arts.
