Inspired by Art: The Last Concubine (The David Chronicles Book 9)

Inspired by Art: The Last Concubine is a collection of art throughout the ages, around the story of David. This volume focuses on the last concubine, Abishag, the rivalry between his sons, Adonijah and Solomon, and the transition of power to his chosen heir, ensuring his legacy for future generations.

These amazing sculptures, paintings, etchings, and manuscripts inspired the author to write The David Chronicles, a series of three volumes, the second of which is A Peek at Bathsheba, where she imagines the love affair and the ensuing scandal. Besides being an artist and having worked as an architect, she taught art history, and this collection served as the basis for a study course analyzing the contrasts in viewpoints around the biblical story.

This collection is arranged not by artist, nor by artistic style or era, but rather by the story moment-by-moment, blow-by-blow, as imagined by various artists. Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Chagall, Picasso, and Jan Steen to name but a few.

Best of Both Worlds: Museums, Libraries, and Archives in the Digital Age

Wayne Clough, Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, asks "How can we prepare ourselves to reach the generation of digital natives who bring a huge appetite--and aptitude--for the digital world?" He explains how the Smithsonian is tackling this issue in Best of Both Worlds: Museums, Libraries, and Archives in a Digital Age.

Libraries and archives have already made many documents available through the Internet. The digital world presents a bigger challenge for museums; producing images of 3D objects is more complicated, and collections are built with exhibitions in mind rather than open access on computers.

In 2009, the Smithsonian began digitizing its vast collections to make them accessible to the millions of people who do not visit the museums in person. "Digital access can provide limitless opportunities for engagement and lifelong learning." Clough sees museums gradually moving beyond showcasing collections to engaging the public online so "visitors" can access the objects they find most interesting.

Education has always been at the core of the Smithsonian. Today, the Smithsonian offers materials and lesson plans that meet state standards for K-12 curricula; online summits on many diverse subjects; the Collections Search Center website; and apps. The Smithsonian's website, www.seriouslyamazing.com, draws people in with fun questions and then takes them deeper into the subject. The question "What European colonizer is still invading the U.S. today?" reveals not only the answer--earthworms--but also in-depth info on worms from environmental researchers.

Clough concludes with this thought: "While digital technology poses great challenges, it also offers great possibilities."
