Is there anything new under the sun? And if so, what difference does it make? Postmodern artists would answer the first question with a resounding "no." In recent columns and reviews, I've explored some of the views of these artists, who reject the idea of originality. They also argue that an artwork has no meaning outside the context of political, historic and social networks in which it is placed. I owe much of my understanding of these issues to Joel Eisinger, who teaches in the art history department at the University of Minnesota at Morris, and is the author of "Trace and Transformation: American Criticism of Photography in the Modernist Period."

There's a scene in the first episode of the new web series "BFA" that quickly tells you this isn't another navel-gazer about life as a 20-something in New York or Los Angeles. Our protagonists, a group of Baltimore actors who make up the fictional Stick People Theatre Company, have just put on an edgy performance in their partially renovated rowhouse. The audience - five lonely souls - is told afterward by emcee Sarah Pearl (played by 23-year-old Katie Hileman) that cupcakes and beer are available as refreshments.

One of the most popular electives at my law school is Interviewing, Negotiations, and Counseling (INC).  Students learn the basics of interviewing parties, negotiating agreements and advising clients on their best options. It also has no final exam. I always wanted to take this course but something always got in the way.  Either it wasn't offered or I had other requisites taking my time. So, I'm taking the alternative route to INC: planning a wedding. Sure, it's not in the academic context, but its lessons are just as useful.

As a young girl, Jean Brinton Jaecks would sit around her family's dinner table in Severn and listen to her parents talk about nature, light and color. Her mother, Mary, was a painter; her father, Earl, created wood sculptures as a break from his job as a designer at Westinghouse. "Back in the 1960s, they began an organic garden," Jaecks recalls. "In 1961, that was unheard of. The neighbors made fun of them. " Love of the outdoors and the arts were reinforced during summer vacations, when the family would drive to Cape Ann and Rockport in Maine.

Baltimore City's Cylburn Arboretum is an artist's paradise, which is why painter Patricia Bennett has been drawn to the 207-acre grounds of trees and gardens since 2005. But unlike other artists who dot the landscape of the longtime city park, Bennett, of Mount Washington, now has an official reason to be there. Since January, the 36-year-old attorney's wife and busy mother of two young children has been working as Cylburn Arboretum's first-ever artist-in-residence, a program that city officials say is designed to formalize the natural connection between artists and the arboretum.
