B. Kathleen Gallagher
B. Kathleen Gallagher's interest in policy, the arts and nonprofit management derive from an education that includes a B.A. in Art and Architectural Histories from the College of the Holy Cross; an M.B.A. with emphases in marketing and arts management from the University of Illinois; a certificate in Appraisal Studies in Fine and Decorative Arts at George Washington University; and an M.A. in Modern Art, Connoisseurship, and the Art Market from Christie’s Education. Her academic training is complemented by professional experience at the Smithsonian Institution, Butterfield’s auction house and Sotheby’s, and as an independent appraiser of fine arts. Gallagher’s recent research examines the impact of funding sources on the sustainability and survival of arts and culture organizations.
