Christie’s in New York City is the largest fine arts auction house in the world.

Earlier this month it held its second annual symposium, bringing experts together to discuss various issues facing the art world.

This year, seven international speakers addressed a question: should art history include the study of arts markets and economics?

One of those speakers was Fort Wayne’s own Jennifer Ford, a corporate art consultant for Choice Designs.

WBOI’s Virginia Alvino sat down with Ford a few weeks ago to find out more about why this issue is important, and find out her opinions on the matter.
