A Visual Artist's Guide
to Estate Planning is a comprehensive handbook designed to assist artists
in planning their estates. The book has two main parts and an appendix.
Part I introduces general estate planning concepts and offers practical
advice and a discussion of legal issues raised by artists at an estate planning
conference. Part II consists of an in-depth discussion of policy and
law on selected issues of estate planning and administration for visual
artists. This section was written by the Committee on Art Law of the
Association of the Bar of the City of New York. The Appendix contains
sample forms, resources, and additional information.
A VISUAL ARTIST'S
GUIDE TO ESTATE PLANNING
The Marie Walsh Sharpe
Art Foundation and The Judith Rothschild Foundation co-sponsored a Visual
Artists Estate Planning Conference in New York. Artists, accountants,
archivists, art dealers, curators, lawyers, writers, and representatives
from foundations, government, museums, and other nonprofit organizations
attended. During the two day conference they discussed practical
and legal issues related to artists' estates both in planning and in administering
an artist's estate. A Visual Artist's Guide to Estate Planning is
a result of this project.
The 2008 Supplement Update, now online, by Barbara Hoffman and other contributors will discuss in greater detail recent developments with respect to artist's foundations and other significant changes in the tax and other laws.
