    I love this thread a lot and did a search and found it again. here is my silly question:
    How to find: "major" contemporary galleries among so many galleries?

    My daughter is an art major at Northeastern University in Boston, which is coincidentally across the street from the Museum of Fine Arts. They look like they have great undergrad and grad programs: http://www.art.neu.edu/documents/A+D_viewbook4web.pdf.

    The school is also known for their world-class co-op program, where students can work in the field during semesters off -- usually for money, as opposed to unpaid internships. (This might only apply to undergrad students.)

    Boston is a great city for networking, too. And the school has overseas semesters and study abroad; it's easy to fly to the UK and other parts of Europe from there.

    There's no objective criteria for discerning who's a major gallery and who isn't but you could flip through artforum and get a pretty decent impression from the ads. There are also different age brackets so andrea rosen, luhring augustine, david zwirner etc represent artists which are quite easy to discern as successful. Whereas Reena Spaulings, David Kordansky, Peres Projects etc deal with a much younger though equally as "relevant" kind of crowd.

    I've been too lazy/busy to post the grad list in full but the findings are pretty much

    go to Yale, Columbia or UCLA

    If you can't get into those, go to Bard, Hunter or Calarts
