We are back with another #ARCSChat bonus episode for the month of May! #ARCSChat hosted a much-requested special episode about how the numerous changes in the world resulting from COVID-19 will affect our insurance policies and requirements. Representatives from these fantastic ARCS sponsors Huntington T. Block, Willis Towers Watson, Liberty Mutual Underwriters, and Berkley Asset Protection weighed in on the issues and responded to your live questions. A special thanks goes out to all who wrote in and requested this topic!
With the recent release of AAMD’s Resolution on the use of deaccession and restricted funds during the COVID-19 pandemic, #ARCSChat hosts John T. Robinette (@CargaLatina) and Amanda Robinson (@ARobKabob) reached out to various experts in the museum and legal fields to gather their insight and opinions on the impact and future change AAMD’s statement might have on art institutions throughout the United States and beyond. Join us as we interview Director of the Institute of Museum Ethics Sally Yerkovich, attorney Mark Gold, and attorneys and hosts Steven Schindler and Katie Wilson-Milne of The Art Law Podcast.
It is that time of year to dust off your emergency preparedness plans and get ready for May Day! Join #ARCSChat hosts John Robinette (@CargaLatina), Amanda Robinson (@ARobKabob), and Robin Bauer Kilgo (@rbkilgo) as they speak with hosts Jenny Matthiason and Kloe Rumsey of @thecwordpodcast.
