Admin to cut budget in 2006

The UA will see a half-percent budget cut next fiscal year along with eight other budget reallocation methods, which will bring in $6 million to central administration, administrators announced yesterday.

The decision comes after months of deliberation among administrators, who said the university must reassess the way it manages money during a time of decreased state funding.

According to a financial bulletin released by President Peter Likins, Provost George Davis and Joel Valdez, senior vice president of business affairs, general funds have fallen by $47 million in the past two years. [Read article]

Government reprehensible in Schiavo dealings

The Terri Schiavo case has reached blistering levels of publicity in the past week. In an attempt to distract the national media from Tom Delay's legal trouble and George Bush's failing domestic agenda, among other things, Republican leaders have participated in egregious political grandstanding.

Photography may be the most accurate visual representation of reality, while sculpture can offer the most abstract and symbolic representation of reality. But the Museum of Contemporary Art's new exhibit uniquely combines the two with the exhibits "Dave Lewis: State Furniture" and "Dan Budnik: David Smith at Work."

As a part of their Origins series that examines the roots of post-modern art, this exhibition presents Budnik's poignantly real photography of the great 20th century sculptor David Smith as a compliment to Lewis' socially critical sculpture exhibit that examines power. [Read article]
