Tyler Graduate student Marisa Muller is working towards her Master of Arts in Art History with a concentration in Fine Arts Administration. This summer she interned at Americans for the Arts, where she drafted press releases, wrote blog posts, and conducted a survey to gain insight into members’ satisfaction with Americans for the Arts benefits and the recently launched pARTnership movement. As part of a team, she created an online survey, drafted and conducted phone interviews, analyzed the data, and presented the findings in a company-wide presentation. Additionally, she helped with the BCA 10: Best Companies Supporting the Arts in America 2012 Gala, drafting the text for the award ceremony’s publication and the script for the award ceremony.
I wanted to share one of her blog posts, because it talks about the value of an art degree in our current job market. I think all majors at Tyler School of Art will find this fascinating, and their parents will find it revealing.
