Classic 'Round the World

* 360 degrees. Notre Dame's web site now has awesome online, 360 degree tours of campus sites [here]. Surprisingly, they do not offer one of the elevator lobby of 3rd floor Flanner Hall. The panoramic view of the Basilica puts you at right about the spot I was married at.

* Unanimous. Golden Tate deservedly becomes the first unanimous All-American at Notre Dame since Shane Walton in 2002, and the first on offense since Aaron Taylor back in 1993.

* Questions. Muppet Golden Tate and Muppet Jimmy Clausen, who I guess is like a mellow Harpo Marx of these bits, have some tough questions for new Irish head coach Brian Kelly [here].

* Tweet. Coach Kelly's Twitter page is now linked on the sidebar and can be found [here].

* Symposium V. Article from [here] and information from the Georgia Museum of Art's web site [here] about the Fifth Henry D. Green Symposium of the Decorative Arts.

* European art world fight. From the Associated Press: "The prince of Liechtenstein has canceled a major London art exhibition because British officials have held up the export of a Renaissance painting he bought in 2006, officials said Wednesday."

* Obit. Thomas Hoving, director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art for a decade, 1967-77, died last week.

* Build. The Michigan State University's trustees have approved the start of construction for the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum, to be designed by Zaha Hadid. More details [here]. The St. Louis Art Museum is pushing ahead with its expansion plans. And Denver's Clyfford Still Museum moves ahead as well.
