Understand the risks in the handling of an artwork collection

$60.00 Guest Registration

For decades, corporations, institutions and professional firms have been accumulating collections of art, antiques or other collectibles. For many organizations the art collections are an extension of the corporation’s image. An artwork collection is an asset which is valuable, but frequently improperly cared for and unprotected. Proper care and protection of these collections could help to ensure that the artwork collection is an asset which continues to hold or grow in value for future decades.

Program Description:

Integral to proper care and preservation of your art collection is an understanding of what factors put your collection at risk for loss or damage. This program will outline what environmental risks may be present in your facility, how to identify and assess these risks,  what steps you can take to mitigate damage to your collection and when it is time to call a professional.  Included will be recommendations for implementing these steps with  achievable short term  goals as well as ways to build a long term art protection strategy and emergency preparedness plan.

Presenter: Emily Nixon

Ms. Nixon has acquired and managed corporate collections of art and archives for over 25 years both in house for Continental Bank and Bank of America and as an independent curator for major corporations; businesses; law firms; and private individuals.  She has graduate and undergraduate degrees in art and is a certified Collection Care Specialist from the School of the Art Institute and the University of Chicago. She has served on boards for the City of Chicago % for Arts; Chicago Artist's Month; and Loyola University Museum of Art.

Attendees will have an opportunity to participate in a short tour of the Skadden Arps space.  The tour will follow immediately after the presentation.
