Absurd opening sentence and general premise[edit]

The general tendency of this article is absurd. An article called Arts administration should be about arts administration, not about the college courses that teach you how to be an arts administrator. (Imagine if an article called Canadian literature began "Canadian literature is a college or university discipline which teaches people about the literature of Canada.") Almost this entire article is about university arts administration courses, not about the specific nature of the job and how being an administrator of a small and/or non-profit arts organisation is quite different from something that may appear to be superficially similar, e.g. event management. This article manages to be almost entirely irrelevant. I would rewrite it myself if I weren't busy working as an arts administrator. Lexo (talk) 23:03, 1 September 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Blatant advertising[edit]

Plenty of third party for profit links w/in the body content. This article is horrible! I'm going to add some CLEANUP!! tags to the main article... if it's not too time consuming. (208.70.93.174 (talk) 22:43, 5 February 2010 (UTC))Reply[reply]


Citation Problems[edit]

Half of the citations used are broken links or just links to scam sites. There also needs to be more citations in general regarding all the information given. Turtlethatroars (talk) 01:26, 21 February 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I agree with you, the citation need improvement on more explanation information instead of some link to third party website.Jingw99 (talk) 02:20, 30 September 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This is Poorly developed. I feel this article has the right structure and ideas, but it is executed poorly with not much direction. --BaileyNem (talk) 15:59, 25 February 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Article doesn't seem to have a point besides minutia[edit]

Soooo... a manager/management. I can sympathize with the need for capable administrators in organizations dedicated to the arts, but I have a sneaking suspicion the only reason this article exists is because it's a major in some fancy universities. As a quick check, I searched for "IT manager"... no article. Neither is better than the other, but why this needs to be an entire article in an encyclopedia is kinda baffling.
