Blending Art and Entrepreneurship

Adrienne Callander

Though Adrienne Callander is an assistant professor of art and entrepreneurship, her research centers on challenging the separation of these two processes.

Callander has appointments in both the School of Art in the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences and in the new Department of Strategy, Entrepreneurship and Venture Innovation in the Sam M. Walton College of Business.

As a practicing visual artist, Callander has exhibited in the U.S., Canada, Iceland and Germany. Both her work and her research, which she describes as "very experimental and hybrid," include publication and art production.

In addition to teaching, she facilitates arts integration and partners with on- and off-campus entities to grow opportunities and engagement with the arts by connecting students with regional and national experts, and with other community partners. The goal, she says, is to extend student experience beyond the classroom.
