Matthew Smith joined Sponsored Programs in September 2018. As an alumnus, he returns to UCA after earning his master’s degree at Georgetown in Washington DC. During that time, he interned at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C. and the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, WY. He also traveled abroad, spending a semester in London at Sotheby’s, taking part in their Art and Business Course. Most recently he spent eight and a half years at the Arkansas Arts Center in Little Rock. Coming from the nonprofit world, he understands the importance of grant funding and looks forward to assisting UCA faculty with their future project funding needs.
