A WRITER- IN- RESIDENCE PROGRAM WHILE RIDING AMTRAK

Not really related to Asian Art but a marvelous idea — and one could write about Asian art —–

A WRITER- IN- RESIDENCE PROGRAM  WHILE RIDING AMTRAK

Amtrak announced that up to 24 writers will be given round trip tickets on long distance trains, including  beds in sleeper cars, a desk and electrical  outlets — in addition to the romance long train rides promise. The writers will have to do the rest. Residences will be from two to five days. Winners will be selected starting next week.

More related to Asian Art – the new director of the Smithsonian Institution has chosen a practicing cardiologist  who heads Cornell University as its next Secretary, overseeing some 19 museums —  Dr. David J. Skorton.  He said ” A life in medicine has taught me that  that we will not solve our thorniest problems  or meet our toughest challenges as a society  through science alone”. Art is important and Dr. Skorton said that his interest in Asian Art led him to visit the Athur M. Sackler Gallery and the Freer Gallery at the Smithsonian. Gratulations!
