Of course I realize that Mr. Canfield keeps his tongue firmly planted in his cheek, but his  “twig lady” interview does bring up some very interesting questions about the history of art in general, and modern art in particular. If we’re being honest we all want to know the meaningContinue Reading

I have a few thoughts regarding Mr. Canfield’s remembrance of the so-called “Twig Art” that was displayed at Pace in the early 90’s. The artwork was actually a temporary installation sculpture that referred to the environment. Matter plus form equals content.

For decades, Pace students have been doing just fine with textbooks, paper, and pens. Textbooks are an investment, but they make sense. Why, then, does the Academy feel that we need to have iPads in addition to overpriced books? Is it because our administration wants us to be more competitiveContinue Reading

Aug. 5, the United States’ credit rating was downgraded by Standard & Poor’s (S&P) from AAA to AA+. S&P is a company that creates ratings for countries internationally to indicate the value of owning that country’s debt, investing in its stock market, and other related monetary maneuvers.

Students usually walk through the FAC doors on Wednesday mornings expecting to use the long assembly time to catch up on some much needed sleep or to finish homework, since only a few assemblies attract genuine interest.
