815 Free Art Books from World Class Museums: The Met, the Guggenheim, the Getty & LACMA.

A motherlode.
Whatever else Banksy's 2010 documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop suggests about the strange relationship between the worlds of gallery and street art, its title alone hints at a serious problem with the art establishment: museums are expensive!

Evolution never stops
It has been postulated that natural selection is spurred on by environmental changes. While environmental changes do force adaptation and throws up winners and losers, natural selection under stable conditions has been less studied. Scientists grew E coli bacteria under stable conditions and periodically took samples and froze them to o see the long term adaptability. It turns out that natural selection and improved fitness is a never ending process, at least
