Happy Hour: Ars Gratia Artis

  • A judge ruled that Fisk University can sell at least part of their $74 million art collection to a museum in Arkansas, so the collection will spend part of its time there and the other part in Fisk’s storage facility. The only catch is that they can only use $10 million of the $30 million sale to stabilize their finances; the rest has to go into the endowment. [WPLN]
  • Nashville State Community College is getting so crowded that they’ve had to move several of their classes into trailers. They’ve apparently grown 25% in the past two years, probably due in part to the Great Recession. [WSMV]
  • A huge congrats goes out to the CEO of the TVA who was recently awarded a 10% raise. [WZTV]
  • Tennessee has banded together with 12 other states to ask the United States Supreme Court to uphold the controversial Arizona immigration law. [Tennessean]
  • Welp, it snowed in the Smokies and there’s 3-7 more inches in the forecast for Friday. So far, our forecast here just looks cold. [WZTV]
  • Rep. Jim Cooper, who beat out David Hall in the election earlier this week, is asking folks to send back his campaign signs. He’ll even pay you 25 cents, per sign. Does it count if we drive around town collecting them? [WSMV]
