Art is changing and SMU is following close behind. The future image of the nation’s arts and pressing issues will all be revealed.

Arts and Culture Community Forum, a panel discussion presented by a joint venture between Meadows School of the Arts and the Cox School of Business, will be held on Monday.

The forum will broadcast Meadows’ future plans for a National Center for Arts Markets and Arts Management Research.

The informational panel discussion will include panelists Dr. Zannie Voss, chair of SMU’s Meadows’ Division of Arts Management and Arts Entrepreneurship; Rick Lester, president of Target Resource Group; Flo Gardner, senior associate of Pew Cultural Data Project; and Neville Vakharia, project director of Pew Cultural Data Project.
