Pazzi Chapel, a 15th-century landmark within Florence’s Santa Croce complex, is reaching out to potential donors around the world to help fund a much-needed restoration of the chapel’s loggia. The loggia, by Filippo Brunelleschi (but completed by Michelozzo and Guiliano da Maiano) and adorned with colorful tin-glaze terracottas by Luca della Robbia, is deteriorating due to the soft grey sandstone with which it was built. A donation of $10 or more will get your name in the church archives (with higher amount levels including additional perks).
The Getty Foundation partnered with leading art museums to launch the Online Scholarly Catalogue Initiative (OSCI) that offers online browsing of each museum’s chosen highlights and scholarly content. The goal of the initiative is to “create models for online catalogues that will dramatically increase access to museum collections; make available new, interdisciplinary, up-to-date research; and revolutionize how this research is conducted, presented, and utilized.”

BREAKING NEWS: The federal judge presiding over Detroit’s bankruptcy hearing has ruled in favor of the “Grand Bargain” — a deal to accept $816 million over 20 years from nonprofit foundations, the State of Michigan and DIA donors in exchange for reduced pension cuts and not selling off some (or most) of Detroit Institute of Art’s (DIA) permanent collection.

A while back we posted a great way to support the California Arts Council: getting a license plate featuring Coastline, a sunset-and-palm-tree motif designed by artist Wayne Thieboud. The most recent good news is that this “special interest” plate, the first specialty plate in the U.S. designed solely to benefit the arts, can now be given as a gift Voucher Card that recipients can redeem online.
