Legacy Planning for Artists Workshop

Saturday, October 16

10am – 5pm

Demystifying the work of legacy planning for artists.

Most artists produce hundreds of works of art during the course of their career; many produce thousands. At some point they need to start thinking about their legacy as an artist, and even more importantly what will ultimately happen with their art. 

The Morean is hosting a full day workshop to help artists better understand the long term management of their artwork and what to consider for the future of their legacy and estate.
