"Schools are places where you can have arguments," says Catherine Lord, the dryly iconoclastic new chairman of the art department at UC Irvine. "You learn by seeing other people argue. For me, it's a business of getting people to articulate their ideas--not just verbalize them, but articulate them in their work and have a stake in them. Students need to figure out how much they care and what the price of caring is." Lord, 42, is a social activist in the visual arts.

Among the details to emerge in the aftermath of the Connecticut elementary school massacre was the possibility that the gunman had some form of autism. Adam Lanza, 20, had a personality disorder or autism, his brother reportedly told police. Former classmates described him as socially awkward, friendless and painfully shy. While those are all traits of autism, a propensity for premeditated violence is not. Several experts said that at most, autism would have played a tangential role in the mass shooting -- if Lanza had it at all. FULL COVERAGE: Connecticut school shooting “Many significant psychiatric disorders involve social isolation,” said Catherine Lord, director of the Center for Autism and the Developing Brain at New York-Presbyterian Hospital.

I am writing to give praise to Cathy Curtis for finally articulating an obvious insight: that Orange County is a conservative and, at times, unfriendly environment for the visual arts ("O.C.'s Well-Groomed Art Scene," Jan. 28). Interest in visual culture seems limited to observing repetitive and mundane exhibitions or thinking that the gallery scene in Laguna Beach is the height of "real" art. As a former art-gallery director at a local Orange County college, I vividly recall the constant struggle to educate the local community about new art. Risk-taking was never rewarded, let alone understood.

This fall, the former dean of the School of Art at Cal Arts in Valencia has revved up the UCI art gallery program with richly personal and political work by Carrie Mae Weems.

In 1971, shortly after graduating from UC Irvine, Chris Burden had himself shot in the arm for a piece of performance art that drew international attention to Orange County. The shot heard around the world grooved UCI a niche in art history lore, and Burden, one of today's art novas, never lost his shine.

Children as young as 2 should be routinely screened for autism, just as they are for vision and hearing problems, a national committee of experts recommended Wednesday. Early diagnosis is crucial because prompt intervention using various educational programs greatly improves the chances that very young autistic children will learn to communicate properly and develop appropriate social skills, according to a report by the National Research Council panel.

What can it mean for an artist to reinvent a landscape? It might mean painting pink trees or playing with perspective.

Fearing economic dire straits, a group of concerned artists and others in the local art community are working to obtain an exemption for artists from the recent tax reform law. Section 263A of the 1986 Tax Reform Act allows artists to deduct only the portion of their expenses used to create artworks that have been sold, said artist June Wayne, who is spearheading the tax law opposition.
