BLOOMINGTON, IN - Dr. Michael Rushton, a Director of the Center for Cultural Affairs and Professor at the Indiana University O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs, has published a new book: The Moral Foundations of Public Funding for the Arts. The book provides an analysis of public arts funding from the perspectives of various traditions in moral philosophy, and the practical implications for funding that arise from different moral and political perspectives. It provides a valuable resource for arts policy practitioners, scholars and students.
Dr. Rushton’s expertise is in the economics, management, and public policy of the arts. Previous publications include articles on topics including funding, nonprofit organizations, taxation, copyright, freedom of expression, and artistic and local development. In 2014, Rushton published his first book, Strategic Pricing for the Arts. He also served as Editor for Creative Communities: Art Works in Economic Development in 2013 and has held numerous faculty positions in institutions in the U.S., Canada, and Australia.
Recently published by Palgrave Macmillan, Moral Foundations of Public Funding for the Arts is available from Springer Link or wherever books are sold.
