Arts Administration is the field that concerns business operations around an arts organization. Arts administrators are responsible for facilitating the day-to-day operations of the organization and fulfilling its mission. Arts organizations include professional for-profit entities (e.g. auction houses, art galleries, music companies, etc.) and many smaller professional and non-professional non-profit arts-related organizations (e.g. theaters, museums, symphonies, jazz organizations, opera houses, and ballet companies).
Why is this Important?
- Professional Associations are where the industry of the major gather together
- Many have student chapters you can join while in college
