In a period of 14 days, Lusk signed up 7 institutions in the same city where the Marlene Yu Museum opens, to exhibit non-overlapping themed selections from Yu's 50 years of work, approximately 4000 paintings and more than 35 series of art works on canvases ranging from 16 inches to 37 feet long.

The celebration is to begin when Yu turns 77 mid-September to early November of this year at the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum; October to November 2014 at the Robinson Film Center; December 2014 at the Marlene Yu Museum; January to March 2015 at the Bossier Arts Council; February 2015 at the Meadows Museum of Art; April 2015 for National Environmental Education Week and Earth Day at Sci-Port; and with the Shreveport Regional Arts Council. 

Backers receive rewards as varied as notecards featuring Yu's art, signed posters and prints, discounted tickets to the December 18, 2014 preview party of the grand opening of the Marlene Yu Museum, sponsorship credits, 200-plus page books about the art, and even original paintings of the artist.  

"I think that not only will we be able to accomplish our goal, but Marlene will also be incredibly moved by our collective online response and it will be a huge encouragement for her to keep producing amazing art at her active 77 years of age," says Lusk.  

Yu has had 69 solo shows in the U.S., Europe, and Asia, and is Founder and Curator of the Rainforest Art Foundation in New York.  Her work has earned reviews and interviews in 9 languages in more than 200 publications, by numerous art magazines, newspapers, TV, and radio shows, such as ARTFORUM, Art in America, Art News, World Journal, and Barbara Walters' Today Show.  

In recognition of Marlene's love of nature, her passion as one of the environmental pioneers in the green movement in the arts, and her non-profit work as Founder and Curator of the Rainforest Art Foundation to increase appreciation of nature through art, the end date of this kickstarter coincides with Earth Day -- Tuesday, April 22, 2014.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...
