The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.

An Attic Advent: 16th December
The Rest is Up to You (SFMOMA)
By Cohen Morano and Aye Jay Morano
He may be only eight years old, but Cohen Morano has already had several solo art shows. For years, his inspired father has been inviting other artists to embellish Cohen's watercolors. The collaborators now number more than 100, and include the likes of Paul Frank and Shepherd Fairey.
