In honor of Women’s History Month, NYU Steinhardt’s Council on Arts Management Programs is pleased to present “CEOs in the Arts.” The event will feature president of the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), Karen Brooks Hopkins, interviewed by another femme force in the culture and arts industry, Susan Feldman, artistic director of St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn.
NYU Steinhardt established an arts administration program in 1971. The purpose of this event is to educate aspiring students on the dynamic field of arts administration with a focus on women in the industry.
Hopkins is one of the most distinguished leaders in the field of performing arts presenting. She has made viable years of avant garde performing arts to thousands in a very competitive arts market. By crafting and leading the long-term planning and funding of BAM’s world famous “Next Wave Festival,” she has made BAM a force in global arts.
Under Feldman’s artistic leadership, St. Ann’s continues to celebrate the panoramic traditions of American and world cultures, with forays into a variety of contemporary forms, including new commissions and multi-disciplinary theatrical presentations.
Free and open to the public, the event will take place on Friday, March 2, 2012, and begins at 6:00 p.m. in the Einstein Auditorium located within The Barney Building of the NYU Steinhardt School at 34 Stuyvesant St. Subway Lines: A,B,C,D,E,F,M (W. 4th St.); N, R (8th St.-NYU); 6 (Astor Place).
