Protect & Preserve: Estate Planning Primer for Artists – September 14, 2016

Posted on Posted in blog, Past Events

What will happen to your artwork when you pass away? Who will take care of the works you created and collected during your lifetime? Would you like your family to keep your artwork, or donate it to a museum, or sell the works to interested buyers? While every responsible person should have an estate plan to distribute their belongings upon death, an artist or art collector has an added responsibility of making specific provisions for their artwork.

Join Washington Lawyers for the Arts and presenter Rochelle Haller as she leads you through several different topics including:

  • Community Property vs. Separate Property
  • Probate vs. Non-Probate Property
  • Asset Inventory
  • Estate Planning Documents
  • Artwork Assets

This workshop provides an excellent starting point for artists to begin the estate planning process.
