Brindle, Meg, Ed.; DeVereaux, Constance, Ed.
M.E. Sharpe Inc
Whether the art form is theater, dance, music, festival, or the visual arts and galleries, the arts manager is the liaison between the artists and their audience. Bringing together the insights of educators and practitioners, this groundbreaker links the fields of management and organizational management with the ongoing evolution in arts management education. It especially focuses on the new directions in arts management as education and practice merge. It uses case studies as both a pedagogical tool and an integrating device. Separate sections cover Performing and Visual Arts Management, Arts Management Education and Careers, and Arts Management: Government, Nonprofits, and Evaluation. The book also includes a chapter on grants and raising money in the arts. An introduction, "The Field of Arts Management-Challenges and New Directions," by Meg Brindle and Constance DeVereaux and an index are included.
