I can't figure out how to link directly to embedded video in a tweet, but you should watch this video, on lighting black and brown skin for television.
I am rather taken with this tiny UK town, with is starting a museum of miners art. A fascinating history of 20th century working class art.
Speaking of art and class: this article about the academicisation of poetry in 20th century (don't yawn) in the wake of declining patronage from a class that saw its wealth decimated by the First World War and the Depression, is interesting if you want to think about why so many leading NZ artists are tertiary teachers.

A beautiful NYT story about a cultural camp run by David Severns, a Yurok tribal member, where he teaches traditional ways to make ceremonial regalia.
