- What the arts can do for California that politics cannot
By Joe Mathews - Friday Jun 23, 2017
The state’s arts sector is wrestling with the same challenges: invasive technology, diversifying demography, fading engagement, stagnant education, scarce economic inequality. Over the past 18 months (after being assigned to edit a series on arts and society), I embarked on a crash course in how arts organizations seek to engage people. Today, the arts retain credibility that other human pursuits such as mass media, politics and business have lost. While technology can leave us feeling isolated, the arts connect us, and provide a sense of meaning, accomplishment, and even happiness. Researchers have shown that people who participate in arts and culture are more likely to vote, belong to civic organizations, know their neighbors, and do charitable work. Black Panthers at 50 exhibit, which risked criticism of cultural appropriation and of celebrating a movement associated with violence. The Riverside Art Museum sends staffers to block parties and neighborhood festivals, curating work it supports and conducting surveys on local arts needs. The Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History has prioritized the work of “social bridging” — intentionally bringing together people from different walks of life at exhibits and events. Museum executive director Nina Simon writes that this involves matching unlikely partners — opera singers and ukulele players, welders and knitters, Guggenheim winners and backyard artists. [...] amid a stressful deluge of digital information, arts organizations are models of curation and filtering out distractions.
- Bald eagle threat: Lead ammo left behind by hunters
By MARY ESCH, Associated Press - Sunday Jul 16, 2017
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Bald eagles have made a remarkable recovery across the United States since the pesticide DDT was banned 45 years ago, but the majestic birds are still dying from another environmental poison: lead from bullets and shotgun pellets in wildlife carcasses left behind by hunters.In New York, which has been a leader in the bald eagle restoration in the Northeast for four decades, state wildlife researchers have documented a growing number of eagle deaths from lead poisoning in recent years.In New York, lead poisoning was confirmed as the cause of death in 38 of 336 bald eagles brought to a Department of Environmental Conservation lab near Albany between 2000 and 2015, said state wildlife biologist Kevin Hynes, who does the necropsies."Eagles are doing very well, their recovery is a great success story largely supported by excise taxes paid by hunters" on lead ammunition and guns, said Lawrence Keane, senior vice president of the National Shooting Sports Association.Virginia wildlife advocate Clark said that rather than a ban on lead ammunition, his group is seeking a public education campaign so hunters are aware of the problem and how they can help.
