Here’s how I described them:
Learn the basic steps you must do to make sure your artwork is treated appropriately after you pass. A few simple choices can make the difference: will you leave your loved ones a burdensome duty or a cherished legacy?
For most artists and other creatives, the situation is not easy to think about, but it’s not optional, either. You’ll leave my presentation with background, understanding, and some tips and tricks that will support you in planning the afterlife of your artwork.
Presentation title: Artists’ Estate Planning and Cataloging your Work
Description: What will happen to your artwork after you die? Will your loved ones inherit huge tax bills? Most artists have nightmares of their work ending up in dumpsters, but few have useful inventories or appropriate wills. Artist estate consultant Robin Moore’s presentation will dispel many of your fears. She’ll provide down-to-earth tips and practical tools to get you started. (This workshop is a supplement to last January’s Estate and Cataloging presentation.)
