Rosen Fellowship – please apply!

October 28, 2013

> The Rosen fellowships offer sophomores and juniors up to $5,000 to be able to carry out a project of their own design. Unlike many fellowships where a student has to compete with thousands of people, this funding is available to BC students only. Each year we select at least 8 students. >
> The range of projects is broad. The donor of this fund is not tied to any specific discipline which is great for our students. This week I am going to see the production of a play that one of the recipients wrote and is producing. Another student visited Argentina to work with a composer to create new work. One student fell in love with geology and went down south to participate in a dig. I could go and on about the different projects. They all share in common that the experiences are transformative. >
> Internships, research, or any combination are welcome. In addition, the committee does not look at student transcripts as the Rosen family is interested in making the opportunity available to the widest population of students. >
> I think this opportunity is great for students interested in art as the field naturally lends itself to project based research. I would be happy to visit a class to help spread the word. If there is a specific student s/he is welcome to come by our office at 213 West Quad. We will also help students develop the proposal, if needed. >

Visual Arts Administration M.A. Program

October 28, 2013

As director of the Program in Visual Arts Administration at New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, I am writing to tell you about our unique master’s degree program that can benefit your talented art history and studio students after graduation and further prepare them for rewarding careers in arts administration in the visual arts field.

I hope you will share this information about the NYU M.A. program in Visual Arts Administration with your students. They can also visit our website <> and join our email list <> to learn more. About the ProgramNYU Steinhardt’s M.A. program in Visual Arts Administration prepares students to become leaders in a broad range of arts organizations.

The curriculum addresses the whole art ecology including the cultural environment in which art and arts organizations operate, the role of the artist in society, how artwork is documented, presented, and interpreted, the structure and management of organizations that display artwork – both non-profit and for-profit, and the role of art theorists, critics, dealers, curators, and collectors. A strong emphasis is placed on acquiring the theoretical and practical tools for fundraising, financial management, marketing, and knowledge of new media and technology in the visual arts.

While the program is primarily oriented toward the non-profit segment of the field, it also offers a strong for-profit concentration. Program Highlights:

  • Courses in a primary area of study: Arts Management/Non Profit or Arts Markets/For Profit
  • Choice of concentrations in Curatorial Studies, Arts Advocacy, Art Education, or other area determined by the student’s interest (such as Marketing in the Arts, Public Policy, or Community Outreach in the Arts)
  • Required business courses at the Leonard H. Stern School of Business or the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service
  • Internship opportunities in museums, alternative spaces, public arts agencies, galleries, auction houses, community art centers, and consultancies
  • International courses in the United Kingdom and Germany/the Netherlands in international arts management, cultural policy, and exhibition analysis. Additionally, we offer a ten-week international internship program in London every summer

NYU Steinhardt Visual Arts Administration M.A. Program students benefit from:

  • Our location in New York City, the visual art capital of the world
  • A faculty who are recognized as leaders in the field
  • A strong, local alumni network which provides networking and mentoring opportunities
  • The program’s location in NYU Steinhardt’s Department of Art and Art Professions, where students have the opportunity to interact with our B.F.A. and M.F.A. studio art students and curate exhibitions from their studios

Call For Student Artists Live Painting Opportunity

October 24, 2013

We would like to introduce you to ArtBattles U, a breakthrough opportunity for your students to showcase their talents to their peers and earn compensation for their artwork and time. The core of our experience is a live painting “battle” featuring all college student artists. They are encouraged to be themselves and put their schools in the winning circle.

This November, we’ll host a battle in New York at the historic Webster Hall (home to our launch event in April). We’re looking for the best student artists in New York/New Jersey and we were hoping you might have some excellent student artists to recommend to represent your school in this Art Battle.

ArtBattles U is a concept based off ArtBattles, the original live painting competition, that started in New York in 2001 by students at the Pratt Institute and SVA. In 2012, we launched the long awaited dream to bring ArtBattles to the college arena with our partners at Campus Evolution.

ArtBattles U: New York Battle
Webster Hall
Thursday, November 14th
Doors @ 8pm
Tickets available at

We hope you’ll join in our mission to allow college students to take the stage. Please share the attached Call To Artists or feel free to contact me anytime if you have any questions or want to send any talented student artists my way. I’d be happy to talk with you more.

Thank you,
