Professional Development Opportunity: Insurance 101 For Artists


Tuesday, November 19, 2019
5:30 pm - 6:30 pm



Guest speaker, Erica Martinson, will present the fundamentals you need to know, including:

  • Do I even need insurance?  Won’t my homeowners or renters policy cover me?
  • What if I’m incorporated – does that make a difference?
  • I’m going to be in a show – will the gallery cover my work while it’s hanging?
  • If my work is destroyed, how will the insurer value it?

Space is limited | RSVP is required | Contact: Lauren Brady | 914-428-4220 ext. 316
