In partnership with ArtHouse Syracuse, the Le Moyne College Arts Administration Program is pleased to announce a newly-established Arts Administration Fellowship.
Created to promote diversity in the arts administration field, the fellowship will be awarded to a student who exhibits promise as a future arts administrator and is passionate about connecting arts and communities. Preference for this position will be given to students from diverse backgrounds who have applied and been accepted into the College’s Master of Science in Arts Administration. The recipient of the fellowship will receive a $10,000 stipend for their work during the academic year. Those interested can apply at this link.
“We are so grateful to Le Moyne College Board of Regents member Dr. Gabriel Rich for funding this fellowship,” said Travis Newton, director of the College’s Arts Administration Program. “Thanks to his generosity, a deserving student will get hands-on experience at the ArtHouse, putting into practice what they’re learning in our program.”
Founded in 2015, the Le Moyne College Arts Administration Program is interdisciplinary in nature, offering students the opportunity to apply management concepts in an arts environment. Through course work and real-world experience, the program offers flexibility for students, personal connections with faculty, and a global perspective is woven throughout the program.
ArtHouse fosters public engagement in the arts, expands the boundaries of exhibit making, supporting creative, socially engaged individuals as artists. Located in the Hawley Green Street Historic District on the near north side of Syracuse, ArtHouse serves as a cultural hub, engaging with community members to resolve social problems through cultural works.
A recent study by Le Moyne College faculty found that the arts and culture industry in greater Syracuse contributes nearly $150 million to the local economy annually. Nationwide, arts and culture surpass construction, agriculture, transportation and many other sectors in terms of the value-added to the GDP ($804.2 in 2016). Le Moyne’s graduate program, and this fellowship, aim to train the next generation of arts and culture professionals.
