#ARCSChat Bonus March 2020 Episode: COVID-19

March 27, 2020
"Plans are useless, but planning is indispensable." This quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower looms over this entire special episode of #ARCSchat. In it we discuss dealing with collections care in the time of the coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent closing of many of our institutions. The guests on this episode consist of several members of the ARCS board discussing what their institutions do, offering some ideas and resources for what collections care looks like now, keeping staff busy and motivated, and what's happening with our loans.
 
One important resource that was mentioned is the David Carmichael book Implementing the Incident Command System At the Institutional LevelAs always, if you wish to reach out to anyone on the panel please email info@arcsinfo.org. To continue the conversation, visit the forum on the ARCS website ArcsInfo.org or contact us on Twitter at @ARCS4All.

#ARCSChat March 2020: Deconstructing Insurance Requirements in Loan Contracts

March 6, 2020

Better care for your collections by tearing up your existing loan contracts. Yes, you read that correctly! In a two episode series, #ARCSchat considers two important aspects of our loan contracts and why we should re-evaluate both our knowledge of the subjects and the content of our contracts.

Episode 1 deconstructs our insurance requirements. Hosts John Robinette (@CargaLatina), Robin Bauer Kilgo (@rbkilgo) and Amanda Robinson (@ARobKabob) are joined by guests Mary Pontillo, the National Fine Arts Practice Leader/SVP at Dewitt Stern Fine Art, and Adrienne Reid, the Vice President of Fine Art Insurance at Huntington T. Block. You can find Mary at mpontillo@dewittstern.com and Adrienne adrienne.reid@huntingtontblock.com and @reid_insures_art.

#ARCSChat February 2020: The Courier Conundrum

February 10, 2020

The courier conundrum: Send or don't send? We tackle the ethics and responsibility behind the decision to send a courier and all that's involved in making the decision.  This chat will work in conjunction with the courier training workshop put on by ARCS in Ft. Worth, Texas at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. This workshop will address the necessary skills required to travel as well as seek to establish a standard in the quality of supervision. We will also reference research done by ARCS about when institutions decide to send a courier and, if so, who.

#ARCSChat January 2020: Art + Museum Transparency

January 10, 2020

Happy New Year and welcome back for January’s #ARCSChat! This month hosts John Robinette (@CargaLatina) and Amanda Robinson (@ARobKabob) sit down and speak with Michelle Millar Fishar (@AMTransparency), one of the founders of the Art and Museum Salary Spreadsheet, the Internship spreadsheet, and most recently, a Union spreadsheet. Our conversation dives into how the salary spreadsheet came to be, looks at some of the wider ranging labor disputes happening in the museum and collections field, and explores both the future of Art + Museum Transparency and how we can begin to enact small levels of change, creating a field of collections stewardship that is more inclusive, accessible and diverse.

Below are links to the resources we discussed in our chat:
