Dressel Discusses Arts Administration Thursday, April 9
SALISBURY, MD---The arts are entertaining, educational and often even transformational … but it takes more than just creating artworks to share them with the public.
Judith Dressel, assistant director of development for Salisbury University’s Charles R. and Martha N. Fulton School of Liberal Arts, offers a look at some of what happens behind the scenes at museums, galleries and other venues during her presentation “What Is Arts Administration?”
Her talk is 5:30 p.m. Thursday, April 9, in Fulton Hall Room 111.
Dressel draws on her experiences in administration at major museums including the Detroit Institute of Arts, Baltimore Museum of Art, Chrysler Museum of Art and former Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
She speaks about the various roles, backgrounds, skills and rewards in the management of cultural non-profit organizations. These include career choices in those dedicated to visual and fine arts, history and natural history, as well as the performing arts.
Sponsored by SU Art Galleries, admission is free and the public is invited. For more information call 410-548-2547 or visit the SU Art Galleries website at www.salisbury.edu/universitygalleries.
