Art Administrators “create, develop, facilitate, and evaluate arts and cultural programs and organizations.”
– Association of Arts Administration Educators
“Any arts administrator worth their salt should be able to sell a ticket, plan an invasion, make brunch, conn a ship, design a brochure, write a sonnet, balance the books, build a wall, carry a tune, comfort the board, take orders, give orders, ignore orders, implement orders, act alone, be a team player, solve equations, analyze data, give an elevator pitch, program a computer, herd cats, and look fabulous doing it. Specialization is for suckers.”
I’m documenting art administrator voices in my podcast, Art/s Admins, Who? This project is supported by the Barnett Center for Integrated Arts and Enterprise. Click the image on the right column on this blog to hear us out.
I’m always collecting literature on WHO art administrators are. If you have a great resource you are willing to share, please fill out the form below. Thanks in advance!
