Author: Emily Herbein

Fine Arts Management Professor Linda Earle recently spoke with Temple Now about the consequential impact that philanthropy and artists have had on building equitable creative spaces. Earle, also associate graduate director for arts management track of the master's program in Tyler's Art History Department, discusses the need for change on an institutional level, and looks at large-scale "tentpole organizations," like the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and how they plan to address and further implement diversity plans.
