Making the arts your business.
Arts administrators make the arts happen. Whether it’s through marketing, ticket sales, or fundraising, arts administrators provide the crucial infrastructure necessary to bring the arts to the public.
Arts, innovation, and integration.
Next time you’re at a show, think about all the work that goes into making the performance a reality. Without funding for venues, costumes, and wages, marketing to build an audience, and staff to make sure you have a seat, participating in the arts would be quite a challenge. In short, arts administrators help bring audiences and artists together.
The Arts Administration program is integrated into our community and within other Colleges at Butler. Students take classes in business, communication, the arts, and more, preparing our students to become innovators, connectors, and leaders in their fields and communities.
“Butler truly values real life experience and constantly reminds us that we are people before we are students.”
While most recent graduates will leave Butler for new chapters, some will stay. That’s the case for recent Arts Administration graduate Katelyn Soards ’23 who will work as the Assistant Director of Sponsorships for the Butler Arts and Events Center.
