The Tyler School of Art and Architecture has launched a unique arts management track within its MA in Art History degree program, which engages timely and fresh perspectives framed by Tyler’s values of equity, inclusivity, access, public engagement, and exploration.
Art and society form a juncture where the frictions, aspirations, contradictions, pain, and passions attached to democracy converge. Now more than ever, there is a need — and call — for leaders equipped with a deep understanding of the evolving civic role of cultural institutions, and the aesthetic and ethical dimensions of connecting art and audiences.
Tyler’s arts management track is designed to address this need by supporting the development of skills and imagination that comprise modern leadership. Rather than provide job training that silos, Tyler empowers students to navigate the diverse and evolving landscape, equipping them to pursue a wide range of career paths.
“The economic and political dynamics shaping the current cultural moment are challenging the field to reexamine its history, practices, foundational assumptions, and the ways in which organizational leadership is expressed,” said Linda Earle, professor and graduate director of the MA in Art History/Arts Management Track.
“COVID-related economic and programmatic disruption and calls for justice are also shaping discourse on institutional ethics, cultural equity, access and public service,” Earle continued. “These ideas frame our core classes and provide context for the development of skills and problem solving within the study of practice and policy.”
Positioned within an acclaimed art and architecture school, the arts management track in art history collaborates with Tyler’s programs in Architecture, Community Development, and Community Arts Practices, as well as art disciplines where students and faculty are committed to social change and solving real-life problems through their creative practices. As part of Temple, Tyler students have access to the academic resources of a large, public research university.
Located in Philadelphia, home to a diverse and resilient creative community and a renowned arts and culture scene with vital public programs, Tyler utilizes the city as a living laboratory. Students apply their skills and serve in museums, community-based organizations, the commercial art world, and philanthropic positions, among others.
“We want to actively engage students in our vision of making Tyler a resource in Philadelphia for fresh thinking about ethical, inclusive practices and innovation models of cultural policy management and community building,” said Earle.
