Winslow provides some insight about the Art History MA program at Purchase:

“Studying at Purchase College afforded me the unique opportunity to combine a rigorous art history program with firsthand curatorial practice.

“The integration of the Neuberger Museum of Art into the campus environment meant access to a stellar fine art collection, powerful exhibitions, and vibrant programming.

“I believe the program offers the type of experience necessary for those dedicated to curatorial work and to exploring how that practice can shift expectations for the way art functions in society today.

“That exploration is supported by the knowledgeable faculty and Museum staff and their invaluable connections to the broader contemporary art community.”
