Fall Chicago Arts Organizations in Society Grad Course

This fall, Ann Markusen is teaching Arts Organizations in Society, at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago to 27 graduate students from around world (Cuba, Russia, Venezuela, Colombia, Chiapas, China, Canada and the US). We’re covering many topics: art and politics, race/class/gender, gentrification, evaluation, arts participation, arts policy with great readings (everyone writes a reflection before class each week, posted on a discussion site), and every student is conducting and writing an artist profile, an arts organization profile, and an argumentative piece (written and spoken) about a theme they feel passionate about.
