“I am pleased to partner with Christie’s Education to provide opportunities for diverse candidates to gain entry into the art business. The motivation behind this initiative is to expand scholarship in the study of the visual arts, which will in turn broaden the expertise within the industry,” mentioned Reginald Browne.
“This is a part of our commitment to expanding opportunities for students from all backgrounds, making learning and employment opportunities in the art world accessible to a more diverse range of candidates,” said Jane Hay, International Managing Director of Christie’s Education.
“Arts institutions, including museums, galleries and auction houses, cannot address the urgent need to increase the diversity of their staffs without trained candidates. The Christie’s Education Reginald Browne Joint Scholarship is a major step in the direction of encouraging talented students who otherwise might never consider the field,” remarked Michael Findlay, Director of Acquavella Galleries and Member of the Board of Trustees of Christie’s Education New York.You can find more details about the scholarships which are available, here.
