Arts Administration and Museology studies how arts organizations and museums operate
RUN THE SHOW
For museum curators, it’s not enough to store and display valuable works of art. You have to be part detective—so you know what you have. You have to be part scientist—so you can preserve the work. And you have to be part teacher—so you can share what you’ve learned with visitors.
Theatres, art galleries, dance companies, experimental music venues and every other imaginable arts organization needs people who understand both the artistic side and the practical side. Minors learn about the care and feeding of artists, how to build and keep an audience, grantwriting and more.
Our minor requires an internship at an arts organization or museum. Through your internship you’ll learn the discipline from the inside out.
I’ve designed sets for many New York and regional theatres including Tribeca Performing Arts Center, American Globe Theatre, Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey, Playwrights Theatre of New Jersey and the Bickford Theatre. I also manage to find time to play drums in a klezmer band.
