We’re living during a complicated time—a global pandemic, recession, rise of natural disasters, civic unrest.
It is more important now than ever to have your art collection in order. Collectors and art advisors are flocking to online art collection management tools as they try to control what they can control.
Elysian Koglmeier has seen the best and the worst of collection management. Along with basic collection management best practices, she’ll share cautionary tales. She’ll help you avoid risks like theft, conflicts like infighting, and the sad story of your collecting legacy landing in a garage sale.
This webinar will give you the tools and information needed to protect and preserve your art collection.
Participants will learn:
- How to digitize your collection
- What information is worth saving
- Ways to streamline insurance, accounting & estate planning
- Collaborative strategies for working with your art advisors and other art professionals
- Collection management best practices and common pitfalls to avoid
Elysian invited all members to submit relevant questions in advance. All submissions were much appreciated, but due to time constraints, only a handful will be addressed here in detail.
