Lutie Rodriguez

Intern, Summer 2020 | Texans for the Arts Foundation
MAM, Carnegie Mellon University


Lutie Rodriguez is currently a Grants Management Analyst at the National Endowment for the Humanities, a role she started in August 2021. She graduated with her Master of Arts Management degree from Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College in May 2021. She has a background in classical music and creative writing, which she double majored in as an undergraduate student at Texas Christian University.

Lutie is interested in the intersection of arts and culture and public policy, which led her to her current role at the NEH and her previous role as an intern for Texans for the Arts Foundation. As an intern, she helped redesign and write content for the newsletter and finalize the HOT Toolkit. This learning experience solidified her interest in arts policy and was a quintessential learning experience in preparing her for her current role.

Because of her passion for the arts in her own life, she utilizes arts management to have the same impact on communities.

In her first year of her Master of Arts Management degree, Lutie  interned in the archives at the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and published research about data privacy within arts organizations for Arts Management and Technology Laboratory.
