The UI School of Art and Art History has partnered with M.C. Ginsberg, a local jewelry business, to give students hands-on experience at real-world business.
“What we’re trying to do is raise the awareness of what you need to look for to have a marketable skill in addition to an academic background,” said Mark Ginsberg, the owner of M.C. Ginsberg Objects of Art, 110 E. Washington St.
It’s the first such collaboration between the UI and a business, and it took months to arrange.
