Many arts administrators in municipal government lack formal training in arts and cultural management or any specific coursework dealing with public art. Many Masters of Administration programs do not offer arts and cultural administration as an emphasis. This article reports the results of a survey of human resources managers in cities with populations of more than 50,000 to determine their interest in employees who have an arts and cultural management background and their understanding of the meaning of public art.
