Presenting the Dick Ellis and Virginia Curry partnership with Stonehill College.  We take full advantage of the beautiful campus and the rich resources of the greater Boston area.  We offer participants a "hands on" connection and an exceptional experience of scholarship and professionalism with art.  There will be lecturers on campus each morning focusing on topics which initiate the student to the economics of art, provide suggestions for researching their own areas of art interest and of course we will discuss crimes against art.  We share our first hand international experience, scholarship and current topics in the field.
 In the afternoons we visit several museums, premier art galleries and conduct practical exercises, such as participation in a mock auction at Stonehill.  We'll learn  how auctions are conducted at a major Boston fine art auction house  in our behind the scenes visit.   We will meet museum professionals who will explain their function in regard to exhibition preparation and curation. We’ll try our hand at solving the most important unsolved museum heist in U.S. history. We will observe how conservation specialists work and how security managers manage the risk of the exposure of their treasures.  We'll speak with the curator of an important corporate collection to see how business collects and presents investment art.  This unique seminar adventure equips you to pursue your interest in collecting and appreciating art and understanding the diverse crimes against art like none other.
