Why Support Grad Art?
As a terminal MA program, the Williams Graduate Program in the History of Art places art historians throughout the art world, from academia and museums to galleries and auction houses, as well as many other arts organizations and nonprofits. Supporting this crucial step between undergrad and an arts career requires ever-evolving support, mentorship, and professional experience. Gifts, pledges, and bequests to the Graduate Program go directly to current and future students and help us provide the best support and opportunities for all.
The 50th Anniversary Fund
As part of this milestone event in the program's history, we are embarking on an ambitious fundraising effort to raise $1.5M to endow a 50th Anniversary Fund that will allow Williams to recruit, admit, and support the best students regardless of their backgrounds. This fund will center on three main initiatives to meet this goal:
– Financial aid in the form of fellowships.
– Recruitment including the annual spring open house.
– Professional experiences such as summer internships and workshops with curators, educators, gallerists, and other arts professionals.
