Student Spotlight: Aaron Novak

Aaron NovakAaron is interested in museums with a specific focus on ancient art, archaeology and history museums with a focus on marketing, development and exhibition development. Previously, he worked at the Bible Lands Museum Jerusalem where he acted as the Director of Special Projects. He is currently interning with Third Eye, an arts marketing, PR, and branding firm in New York City and spends whatever free time he has left exploring the endless landscape of arts that this city has to offer.

What attracted you to the Arts Administration Program at Teachers College, Columbia University?

I was attracted by the extremely diverse student body that is passionate about a wide variety of arts related issues. Additionally, there is no better city to study the landscape of museums than New York City. When combining these factors with an Ivy League education, I couldn’t help but find the program very exciting.

How are your studies helping to advance your career goals?

Within my studies I am focusing my attention on the future of museums, museum audiences and museum accessibility, which I see as integral pieces of my career as it progresses. Additionally, I have used this program to experiment in branching out from museums, exploring more contemporary forms of art, as well as learning about and gaining experience in marketing, PR and development.
