The Bard Graduate Center:

Decorative Arts, Design History, Material Culture

The Schwartz family supports the Bard Graduate Center where the late Irene Schwartz was a member of the Executive Planning Committee.  Located in New York City, the BGC's mission is to promote new levels of scholarship in the decorative arts and design and to advance recognition among the general public of the substantial cultural significance of decorative objects and material culture. The BCG offers two programs of study, one leading to a master of arts degree and the other to a doctoral degree.
