Developing an art collection requires time, energy, resources and most of all, passion.  It is often difficult for collectors and their families to contemplate the significance and worth of their assets during their lifetimes, let alone the impact and consequences of the inevitable disposition of their collections. What do I do with the moose head? Inheriting art (or objects) and having a legacy plan, whether it involves keeping, selling, donating, conserving, or insuring, are all part of art stewardship.

With advances in technology and communication, the art market has never been more dynamic and accessible. However, the necessity of art legacy planning is more crucial than ever. As your client’s guide, the necessity of art legacy planning is more crucial than ever.  In order to provide the most beneficial information regarding the management and protection of your client’s collection, we will explore the changing trends in valuation practices and in collection management within the art market, along with the myriad approaches to art legacy planning for both collectors and their heirs. 

The discussion will include an overview of why you need a qualified art appraiser, what actually is an art appraisal, art insurance and the prevention of financial loss, the pros and cons of donating and gifting, estate planning, the various trends in art lending and the consideration of art as an asset.
