Master's Report

Degree Name

Master of Arts in Arts Administration




The following report serves as a culmination of my 480-hour internship with the Joan Mitchell Center Artist Residency Program ( also referred to as “The Center” or “JMC”). As the intern for Community Engagement, I was afforded the opportunity to work closely with the Director and staff across an array of areas including community outreach, public programs and event planning. This report will function as a summary of the organization’s history, programming, and tasks and functions associated with my role. In addition, it will highlight best practices for artist residencies, analyze the Center’s current state of operation, and offer recommendations based upon the aforementioned guidelines.
