“A boy with no one to listen becomes a man in prison for life and discovers his mind can be free. A woman enters prison to teach and becomes his first listener. And so begins a twenty-five year friendship between two gifted writers and poets. The result is By Heart— a book that will anger you, give you hope, and break your heart."—Gloria Steinem For most of their adult lives, since meeting as teacher and pupil at San Quentin State Prison, Judith Tannenbaum and Spoon Jackson have conferred, corresponded, and sometimes collaborated, producing very different bodies of work resting on the same understanding: that human beings have one foot in darkness, another in light. Moving stories of their childhoods and adult creative lives reveal both tragedy and beauty. In alternating chapters—part memoir, part essay—By Heart reveals painful truths about prison, education, and which children our world nurtures and which it shuns. At its core are two stories that speak for human imagination, spirit, and expression. Judith Tannenbaum is a nationally respected poet, educator, lecturer, and the author of Disguised as a Poem, among other works, including poetry, anthologies, and guidebooks for teaching arts in prison. She coordinates training at WritersCorps. Born into an impoverished family of fifteen boys, Spoon Jackson was sentenced to life without possibility of parole by age twenty. He discovered himself as a writer for the first time in prison, eventually becoming an award-winning, internationally-known poet and essayist, as well as a facilitator of creative writing classes for other prisoners.

No longer the Muzak of the decorative arts world, wallpaper has lately fallen back into fashion. Though once derided by Modernists and Minimalists alike for its loud co-option of architectural space, the potential of wallpaper as an environmental medium can now be appreciated again. (One might speculate on the influence that a certain lifestyle magazine has had on this trend.) In "On the Wall, an exhibition that originated at the Rhode Island School of Design's Museum of Art and traveled to The Fabric Workshop in Philadelphia, 39 contemporary artists contributed wallpaper works, some newly created for the show. Included are works by John Baldessari, Nicole Eisenman, General Idea, Robert Gober, Rodney Graham, Renee Green, Jenny Holzer, Jim Isermann, Roy Lichtenstein, Glenn Ligon, Virgil Marti, Takashi Murakami, Paul Noble, Jorge Pardo, Matthew Ritchie, Kiki Smith, Do-Ho Suh, Rosemarie Trockel, and Andy Warhol, among others. This catalogue features reproductions of the artist-designed wallpapers, related essays, and an overview of the medium's history as an art form.

For the past decade, Providence has been the site of a radical underground art scene, giving rise to a multi-faceted, unbridled aesthetic that is as distinct as it is influential. The work earns international press ranging from music and fine art to comic and shelter publications, yet the artists maintain their underground life-as-art practices. This fall, the Museum presents Wunderground: Providence, 1995 to the present, an exhibition celebrating Providence's intersection of art and music. Wunderground will be accompanied by a full-colour, illustrated catalogue with a foreword by celebrated artist and designer Gary Panter. Two major texts, written by Judith Tannenbaum and Providence gallerist Sara Agniel, will contextualize Providence's unique art scene. Artists, musicians, writers, and students who created and witnessed it offer shorter texts-reminiscences, anecdotes, and personal perspectives providing a kaleidoscopic portrait of a time and place. The catalogue is being produced in collaboration with the award-winning art director Dan Nadel of PictureBox, Inc.

Music is a powerful means for educating citizens in a multicultural society and meeting many challenges shared by teachers across all subjects and grade levels. By celebrating heritage and promoting intercultural understandings, music can break down barriers between various ethnic, racial, cultural, and language groups within elementary and secondary schools. This book provides important insights for educators in music, the arts, and other subjects on the role that music can play in the curriculum as a powerful bridge to cultural understanding. The author documents key ideas and practices that have influenced current music education, particularly through efforts of ethnomusicologists in collaboration with educators, and examines some of the promises and pitfalls in shaping multicultural education through music. The text highlights World Music Pedagogy as a gateway to studying other cultures as well as the importance of including local music and musicians in the classroom.
