Muse Scholar graduates early, lands job at Christie's

Just hours after graduating from Hunter a semester early, Colleen Cash received an offer to work as Business Coordinator for the Decorative Arts group in the New York branch of Christie's, the famed international auction house.

Already on the job, Cash handles financial reporting and logistics of several departments within the Decorative Arts group, including Porcelain, Silver, Rugs and Carpets, Chinese Export Art, 18th and 19th Century European Furniture and Objects and other materials. She also helps oversee all department budgeting, calculating market share and trend forecasting.

Cash was part of Hunter's first class of Muse Scholars, entering the college during Fall 2011. Scheduled to graduate in Spring 2015, she earned her degree in January. At the Commencement ceremony, Cash was recognized as an exceptional student leader and was chosen to present the Class of 2015 Legacy Gift. A member of the Thomas Hunter Honors Program, she completed a Special Honors thesis entitled Making MAD: Art, Industry, and the Ascension of Craft. She graduated cum laude.
