HelpDesk with Robin Moore: Understanding Estate Planning for Artists

Saturday, March 14, 2020, 1-2:30 pm

This program is now available as a YouTube Video (below).

By organizing and documenting your art and your career as an artist, you increase the depth of understanding of your work as a history of culture, aesthetics, and values. The Washington Sculptors Group will offer an hour presentation with a half hour Q & A session with Robin Moore on Saturday, March 14, 2020 that offers emerging, mid, and late-career artists the information needed to build and preserve their artistic legacies.

The importance of archiving your work, establishing an executor, obtaining appraisals, understanding tax laws, accessibility of your digital information, understanding charitable benefits, obtaining useful software, acquiring high-quality images of your artwork, establishing records of your collectors and sold work, and more, will be shared during the workshop.

Robin Moore, MBA and advisor to artists, was raised in the New York avant-garde art world with parents who ran two small art businesses. She earned her MBA in 2003. Since 2006, Robin has managed the estate of her late husband, Kevin MacDonald, a prominent Washington, DC visual artist. In 2013, she founded a business to help creative professionals and their families live well with legacies. ​Learn more:
