Arts Organizations in St. Petersburg, FL (Sociology)

"Art Organizations in St. Petersburg, FL"

About the Project:
Saint Petersburg has, in recent years, positioned itself as one of the nation’s leading arts cities.
The city hosts several art museums and numerous smaller galleries, as well as a number of
performing arts organizations and arts educations groups. The purpose of this study is to learn
how arts organizations work with other urban institutions such as schools, businesses, and
government. We will be exploring why some organizations have enjoyed great success, while
others do not survive more than a couple of years. The student will be responsible for tasks such
as collecting and summarizing information about arts organizations and attending city
government meetings about the arts.

The Freshman Research Associate Program at Eckerd College honors academically outstanding students with awards of up to $1,000. The program also provides the opportunity, during the freshman year, for the award winners to work closely with a sponsor (faculty or administrative personnel) on a project of mutual interest. Associates might assist with research for faculty publication or new courses, conduct scientific experiments, work with creative artists, or develop projects related to any phase of the academic, cultural, and social life of the college. Scholars are selected on the basis of achievement in high school and on the creativity and depth of responses to items on this application.​
