My thesis project is an exploration into the field of arts management through an arts administration internship at a non-profit art center called The Muckenthaler Cultural Center, and by directing LMU's student dance concert, IMPULSE. As an arts administration intern, I learned what running an art center is composed of and was able to write grants, communicate with donors, and learn about the programs that make up The Muck. Through directing a dance concert, I organized choreographers to participate, I advertised for the event, I organized and set up the space and I introduced the concert to the audience. Through this experience, I was able to learn about arts management, what encompasses running a non-profit art center and how to efficiently direct an event.
