As you may or may not know, EALS lives at American University in its Arts Management program.  We are fortunate enough to be students during a very special time of celebration.  This year, Arts Management at AU celebrates its 40th Anniversary and cheers on its future to 40+ more years of fun and learning.  Here at EALS we are truly proud of our program’s history and prestige as one of the greatest programs in the nation.

Also, the 40th Anniversary couldn’t help but want in on our #TBT action from last week so we’ve included some wonderful photos of students like us from the past.  You can find out more about the anniversary celebration happening next weekend and register for the event here.  Events of the weekend are listed below.

Students with internship binder (1)

Join former classmates, professors, and fellow alumni to commemorate 40 years of extraordinary arts and cultural managers.

See old friends and relive memories while making new connections, sharing innovations and accomplishments, and touching base with your artistic roots. We will laugh, learn, and live it up as only arts management professionals can – a toast to another 40 years of excellence!
