WACO, Texas (Oct. 29, 2012) - Students will be given the opportunity to participate in a world-renowned art program when Sotheby's Institute of Art comes to Baylor University's campus Tuesday, Oct. 30. Representatives from the institute will present information on its postgraduate programs and answer students' questions at 12:30 p.m. in Room 158 of Albritton Lecture Hall in the Hooper-Schaefer Fine Arts Center, 60 Baylor Ave.

Lucy Fisher of Time Magazine explains that Sotheby's Institute of Art, an independent spinoff of the famous auction house, "combines lectures and field trips to contemporary art fairs to train would-be [collectors] in collection building, gallery economics, art investment and the growing role of art fairs themselves." The institute's programs are offered in New York, London and online, but students are given opportunities to take special courses in cities around the world ranging from Paris to Abu Dhabi.

The presentation is free and open to the public. For more information, click here, or call 254-710-1867.
