Alum Pursues M.A. at Sotheby’s

Filed under: Alumni News,Graduate School — O. @ 7:48 pm


Ashley Dowden, an English major in the Class of 2008, is pursuing an M.A. at Sotheby’s Institute of Art in New York City. (As you might imagine, there’s a similar program in London [and one in Singapore], and both programs feature summer curricula as well as graduate degrees).   The degree prepares students to appraise, purchase, and sell fine art; maintain collections; work at auction-houses; and so on.  Ashley is currently an intern with  the Bank of America Collection at the James Company Contemporary Art Project.  She also founded and helped to direct the Cascade Community Theater, which produces plays in Duval and Carnation, Washington: http://cascadecommunitytheatre.org/aboutus.aspx .
