A recording of a panel discussion with Cheryl D. Edwards and Helen Frederick from Monday, March 8, 2021. Creating a legacy for your artwork is critical to ensuring that your work is protected and preserved for future exhibitions, scholarship, and sales after your lifetime. The actions that you take now as part of your basic art practice are critical to ensuring the possibility of that legacy. And, the added bonus is that it will significantly simplify the processes of applying for exhibitions or residencies in your lifetime. Edwards and Frederick discuss steps to incorporate into your studio practice, and provided specific examples of how to organize, document, and archive your work during your career to be best able to compete for exhibitions and opportunities, such as museum and university exhibitions, and for the placement of your work in permanent collections.
