The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation is proud to offer a limited number of scholarships to attend the Annual Antiques Forum. In addition to exposing students and emerging museum professionals to high quality programs and expert speakers, this was clearly a smart investment for the world of decorative arts and material culture. How do we know? Because five of this year’s speakers at the 72nd Antiques Forum are past scholarship recipients.
Scholarship reviewers over the years have been wise to recognize great potential in these now-experts in their fields. Meet these speakers and learn what you’ll hear from them at the five-day forum, February 21 – 25, 2020.
These five scholarship recipients have made quite the names for themselves, progressing in their field with passion and curiosity. Want to join their ranks? Students enrolled in an art history, history, American studies, museum studies, or related program in the decorative arts, conservation or historic preservation field, or emerging museum professionals employed by a fine art, decorative arts, or history museum should click here to learn more and apply. Applications are due December 20.
Hear from these five speakers and 25 others at the 72nd Annual Antiques Forum, February 21-25, 2020. This year’s theme “The American Home” is sure to enthrall as we did into decorative arts, architecture, and landscape to re-examine the American home and its many inhabitants.
