The AACC annual meeting is among the largest and most dynamic gatherings of educational leaders, attracting over 2,000 community college presidents and senior administrators, as well as international educators, representatives of business/industry, and federal agencies.
In 2011, the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Connections project invited museum staff and volunteers to offer their personal opinions on select works of art in the collection. The result? One hundred episodes that feature individual narrative accompanied by about two dozen images to illustrate their topic. For example, Education Chair Peggy Fogelman's four-minute entry is called Bad Hair and discusses the impact of hair styles. Bad Hair objects range from Francois Boucher's 1751 The Toilet of Venus to Roy Lichtenstein's Stepping Out, 1978, with detours to the nineteenth century for Pre-Raphaelite painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti's depiction of Lady Lilith's flowing locks and Degas' intimate view of Woman Combing Her Hair. While listening to the narration, readers may view the art on a timeline (In Time), on a map (In the World), and In the Museum, in the order they appear in the feature. An especially fun entry, Date Night by Editorial assistant Nadja Hansen, explains why the Met is a great place for a date.
