Lonnie Holley & Mourning [A] BLKstar

Born in Jim Crow-era Birmingham, Alabama in 1950, Lonnie Holley was the seventh of 27 children—and at age four was taken from his mother and traded for a bottle of whiskey (Bloom). He fled abusive foster parents, was hit by a car (and declared brain dead) and was later sent to Alabama Industrial School for Negro Children—a “slave camp” by any other name (Missick). Holley’s work, born out of struggle, hardship—and more importantly, out of furious curiosity and biological necessity—manifests itself in drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, performance, filmmaking, and music.

Why Mapping? Some Lessons from an Art Historian’s DH Ditch

One of the key methodological interventions of Digital Humanities is the capacity to map one’s research data.

As Richard White of now defunct Spatial History emphatically notes in his 2010 working paper, spatial visualization, i.e. mapping, is not a mere illustration to a narrative but “a means of doing research.”

Something about the Nature of Architecture: The History of the Robert B. Haas Family Arts Library

Yale’s Arts Library and the Art & Architecture building (now Rudolph Hall), have encountered numerous changes over the last 60 years, including a fire, adaptive reuse by students, incomplete renovations, and finally rehabilitation, restoration, and expansion. Though Rudolph’s original design has adapted to meet the changing needs of its occupants, the building–and the library–have retained many of his signature touches and the library remains a significant research center for art, art history, architecture and drama studies on Yale’s campus and beyond.
