Arts Administration Institute/New York City

Arts Administration Institute/New York City

Offered every other June, this exhilarating travel course exposes students to New York City's cultural riches- and to a host of careers in the arts and in arts administration.

For one month, students live in New York and immerse themselves in the arts world. Each day begins with classes where discussions and guest speaker topics range from the responsibility of museums in educating the public, to the difference between arts and entertainment. In the afternoon, the group tours cultural organizations such as Christie's, The Frick Collection, Lincoln Center, Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Evenings are dedicated to seeing shows and attending art openings.

With the help of alumnae such as Cathie Behrend '70, students get a personal introduction to many prominent people who make the NYC art scene come to life.

"Every day, we met influential people in the New York art scene," said Catalina Rojo, '09. "We had to be ready to make connections - to hold our own in a conversation with a curator or gallery owner and to present ourselves as competent professional young adults."
