Tennessee man breaks into civil rights museum, then falls asleep

A Tennessee man looking for a place to sleep found a bed at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, where the Rev. Martin Luther King was shot and killed in 1968. But the motel is now part of the National Civil Rights Museum, and Dexter Anderson, 33, was arrested as he slept Tuesday night in room 308 after a security officer called police to report a break in. Rooms 306 and 308 of the Lorraine Motel were booked by King's group at the time of his assassination, and have since been preserved behind glass as permanent exhibits in the museum, which traces the movement from slavery through the late 20th century. Anderson, of Memphis, was charged with vandalism and criminal trespass, Memphis police Sergeant Alyssa Macon-Moore said.

Exhibit recreates Warhol's 1964 World's Fair mural

This April 1964 photo provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc. shows a 20x20 foot mural depicting mug shots of the NYPD’s 13 most-wanted criminals by Andy Warhol, mounted on the curved facade of the New York State Pavilion at the 1964 New York World’s Fair in the Queens borough of New York. The fair celebrated “The World of Tomorrow,” but Warhol may have been ahead of his time. His monumental piece commissioned specifically for the fair was deemed too edgy for the family-friendly event and painted over just before opening day. Now, 50 years later, the work is the focus of a museum exhibition being staged on the very fairgrounds where the pop-art provocateur was infamously censored. (AP Photo/The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc./Artists Rights Society) NEW YORK (AP) — Even for a 1964 New York World's Fair that celebrated "The World of Tomorrow," Andy Warhol may have been ahead of his time.

Manuscript of Rachmaninoff's Symphony No. 2 set for London sale

By Michael Roddy LONDON (Reuters) - An autograph manuscript score of Sergei Rachmaninoff's Symphony No. 2 that had been presumed lost for half a century will be sold at auction in May, Sotheby's said on Thursday. The pre-sale estimate for the manuscript of one of the most important compositions in the Russian romantic repertoire is between 1 million and 1.5 million pounds ($1.68-2.52 million), the auction house said in a press release. The manuscript of the symphony, which had its premiere in 1908 in St Petersburg with the composer conducting, had been on loan to the British Museum for the past 10 years from the Tabor Foundation, which is also a sponsor of the Leeds International Piano Competition. Sotheby's, in an emailed statement, would not comment on whether the manuscript was being placed for auction by the foundation, saying only it was being sold by "an anonymous consignor".

Nigerian museum 'X-rays' Anatsui at 70

Ghanian born renowned sculptor Professor El Anatsui To mark the 70th birthday of one of Africa's most accomplished living artists, a Lagos museum chose to focus on pretty much anything but El Anatsui's globally renowned work. Instead, three decades of payslips from the University of Nigeria, where Anatsui has taught since 1975, are collected in a binder that hangs by a string in the centre of the room. "The objective was to X-ray the man" whose massive influence on African art is impossible to quantify, said Jude Anogwih, a curator at the Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA) in Lagos, where "El Anatsui: Playing with Chance". That was the year Anatsui first began working with the twist-off tops of liquor bottles, which, at his barn-sized workshop in southeast Nigeria, he flattens and manipulates into vast, brilliant tapestries, several of which have sold for nearly $1 million (720,000 euros).

A gay artist will get his images on stamps in Finland

Finland's postal service will honor "Tom of Finland" with stamps taken from his work - homoerotic drawings of muscular men wearing tight, black leather uniforms, when they wear anything at all. The stamps, which will be issued in September, are based on the drawings of Touko Laaksonen, better known by the pseudonym "Tom of Finland," who split his time between Finland and California. "Tom of Finland is considered one of the most well-known Finnish artists around the world," Finnish postal service Itella said in a statement issued this week regarding Laaksonen, who died in 1991. "His emphatically masculine homoerotic drawings have attained iconic status in their genre and had an influence on, for instance, pop culture and fashion." Graphic artist Timo Berry, who designed the sheet of three stamps, said they portray a sensual life force and being proud of oneself.
