Post subject:  Universities as arts patrons

From Marjorie Garber in the Ideas section of the Boston Globe:
Higher art - Universities should become society's great patrons of the arts
The idea that universities should house makers of art is as reasonable, natural, and logical as the idea that the university should contain and nurture other makers: engineers, or chemists, or applied mathematicians. And like those other makers, artists, no matter what arts they practice, need space, materials, training, and assessment, as well as a tolerance of imagination, "genius," stubborn dedication, or eccentricity.
