emerge: journal of arts administration and policy

e-merge is an online journal produced by graduate students in the School of the Art Institute of Chicago's Master of Arts Administration and Policy program, featuring collaborations with guest editors from the SAIC community. It features original, pioneering theory and practice in the field of arts administration and related domains. We seek to engage with issues related to arts administration as a professional practice in order to broaden the overall scope of discourse. We look forward to seeing and sharing the continued evolution of emerge with our audience.

Since the late 19th century, when the museum collection of the Art Institute was established as a study center for the School of the Art Institute, students have used the museum's vast holdings to inspire and inform their creative and scholarly practices. No other school of art and design can claim such a major museum as part of their campus. 

Unparalleled architecture
