NYC Program Concludes Semester With Trips to Christie's and Zoo

Posted May 15, 2012
Tags Program in New York City


Two weeks ago, on the day before Christie’s New York City spring auction of post-war and contemporary art, students and faculty of Hamilton’s New York program received a personal tour of the offerings from Stephen Jones, senior writer at Christie’s.  The auction itself, reported The New York Times, brought in “the highest total ever in the postwar and contemporary category,” including nearly $87 million for a Mark Rothko painting from 1961. 

 

Jessica Griffith ’13, working as an intern this semester, wrote the Christie’s evening sale catalog entry for Alexander Calder’s mobile “Blue Flower, Red Flower,”  which sold for more than $1.7 million, higher than its pre-auction estimate. 


The students also recently visited the Bronx Zoo.
