In partnership with ArtHouse Syracuse, the Le Moyne College Arts Administration Program has selected Betty Etheredge, M.S. ‘21 as the inaugural Arts Administration Fellow. During her fellowship, Etheredge will work directly with ArtHouse staff to further engage the community through their programming. Based in the Historic Hawley-Green neighborhood, The ArtHouse serves, organizes and advocates for the broader Central New York artistic and creative community. The ArtHouse’s mission is to house, celebrate, and nurture artistic and cultural creative stewardship. It incorporates diverse communities, inspires curiosity and lifelong learning, and contributes to a vital and inclusive society.
Chosen in a competitive application process, Etheredge is a graduate of Syracuse University’s Musical Theatre program. Following her time at Syracuse, she relocated to New York City, where she worked with multiple organizations to conceptualize and facilitate arts and culture events. As a future arts leader, Betty looks to promote togetherness, explore arguments, and always ask questions to get to the root of truth.
“This is an especially important time for the arts in our community,” said Travis Newton, director of the College’s Arts Administration Program. “Given the myriad challenges currently facing society, the arts have an important role in healing, facilitating conversations, and uniting people. We’re so glad that Betty has agreed to join us and continue ArtHouse’s incredible work.”
“ArtHouse looks forward to welcoming Betty Etheredge in this 2020-21 year,” said Joan Farrenkopf, founder of the ArtHouse. “Our most important role as an arts and culture organization is to create an opportunity that is in sync with these times.”

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.
