Book #15: Nugacity

The School of Art + Design at Portland State University partially defines its expectations for faculty as:

“The number of exhibitions or other appropriate creative accomplishments expected depends, in part, on the artist’s discipline. For example, the logistics, expenses, and time involved in transporting and installing large works of art make it unrealistic for some artists to exhibit more than once every other year. What is most important is the artist’s engagement with the work and developing a reputation in Portland, the Northwest, and, when possible, nationally and internationally.”
—Portland State Universtiy, College of the Arts, School of Art + Design Guidelines for Promotion and Tenure (Adopted May 16th, 2014)

Oxford Dictionaries define myopia as “Nearsightedness” and “Lack of imagination, foresight, or intellectual insight”.
