DESCRIPTION

The book takes general management concepts and proves that they are applicable to all forms of the arts be they visual or performing. It gives life to the often vague and abstract writings in management by the use of art organization examples. This is a good introductory text on the management of the arts and puts the entire management process into perspective. James E. Suelflow, Professor and Director, Arts Administration Program, Indiana University The primary function of Professor Shore's practical handbook is to help arts administrators create conditions for successful collaboration by integrating management know-how with the special needs and values of an arts organization. Designed for maximum user convenience, the book presents numerous examples, graphic aids, and anecdotes that help the reader understand and retain important principles and methods.
