1) Steve Jobs speed painting: Ramchand admires Steve Jobs, but it’s the painter, Brenda Melgar, who makes the piece precious. “Brenda was a student of our Wolff Center for Entrepreneurship,” says Ramchand. “She painted this a week after Steve Jobs passed away—and she did it in 18 minutes!”

2) Accoutrements d’ India: An intricate black elephant piece topped with a sculpture of the Hindu god Ganesh, both nods to Ramchand’s Indian heritage.
