Lutie Rodriguez

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

Lutie Rodriguez is currently a Master of Arts Management student at Carnegie Mellon University. She graduated in May 2019 from Texas Christian University with a Bachelor of Arts in Writing and a Bachelor of Arts in Music, receiving honors for her thesis about women composers. While at TCU, she played cello in the TCU Symphony Orchestra and was active in the writing department, winning awards for her poetry and creative nonfiction pieces. Because of her passion for the arts in her own life, she hopes to use arts management to have the same impact on communities.

In her first year of her Master of Arts Management degree, Lutie has interned in the archives at the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and published research about data privacy within arts organizations for Arts Management and Technology Laboratory. Having family roots in Texas and a love for the state’s arts and culture scene from her years in college, Lutie is excited to help TFAF advocate for the arts. This summer, she hopes to learn more about how policy and the arts intersect at the state level through helping TFAF with its communications.
