Hello Alumni,

We hope you are staying healthy and taking precautions to help keep others in your community safe, too. While the buildings at West 86th Street are closed, and all events through the end of June have been canceled, BGC is very much alive, with a vibrant virtual presence and plans underway to create programming online. Check out some of the ways we can stay connected below and stay tuned for updates on more online programming.

We have included a small selection of job openings in this newsletter, but be sure to check the job links for any changes in deadlines.

Finally, please reach out and let us know how you are doing. It is more important than ever to keep up with one another during this time.

Warm regards,

Grace Reff (MA ’17)

P.S. — Friendly reminder, the Iris Awards Luncheon has been postponed to Wednesday, October 21. More information forthcoming.

Call for Submissions: One More Thing
BGC is starting a series called “One More Thing” to help us all connect as a community. The general idea is for one person to talk about one object for one minute on video. This is a kind of mashup of Neil MacGregor’s History of the World in 100 Objects and the old Bicentennial Minute. One video per day will be posted on social media and the BGC website for as long as possible during the closure. Here are three sample videos to guide your thinking: Peter Miller, Jesse Merandy, Madeline Warner.

The project is open to all BGC faculty, staff, students, fellows, alums, and teen scholars. If you are interested in contributing a video, please fill out this Google Form. You will receive a follow-up email shortly after with the specific guidelines. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please reach out to Laura Minsky at

BGC Recruitment Video
If you know of anyone interested in learning more about the MA and PhD programs in Decorative Arts, Design History, or Material Culture, BGC recently put together a fabulous video that can be shared with potential students. Watch the video here — it will be sure to lift your spirits!
