Legacy Planning for Collectors
Legacy Planning is the important opportunity to shape a collector’s legacy during their lifetime while creating meaning and lasting purpose through their collection. By documenting, exhibiting, and publishing their collection as well as placing works with institutions, collectors give the gift of connoisseurship now and tomorrow. While strengthening their artistic impact they also relieve their loved ones of the difficult task of organizing an archive, inventory, or collection. Simultaneously, we create opportunities for recognition and appreciation by providing the public and art historical community with scholarship and access to the artwork for generations to come. Through a process of discovery, as well as specific action steps, strategizing a plan can be both enlightening and empowering. We guide collectors and their families through the legacy planning process helping them solidify plans for the future and while reaching milestones today.
Shaping how you and your collection will be remembered, we help create the foundation for your legacy in your lifetime through comprehensive offerings including:
Inventory and archiving
Printed and digital catalogues
Exhibitions and exhibition planning
Estate planning considerations
Essays and promotional writing
Developing legacy programs such as grant-making and artist residencies
Creating scholarship and art historical research
Identifying museums for placement or exhibition of work
Facilitation of charitable donations of artwork
Appraisals and valuation
We can focus exclusively on creating a plan, involving a strategy and roadmap, for a collector to follow independently. For more robust support, we can create as well as implement a plan, playing a more active role in legacy creation and management.
