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!
You know all those environmental standards we’ve been holding onto so tightly in our loan contracts? Yeah, well they’re PROBABLY wrong. That’s right - hold on to your N95s and listen in to #ARCSChat's second episode of our two-part series on loan contracts. In this discussion guests Joel Taylor, Senior Project Specialist at the Getty Conservation Institute, and Caitlin Spangler-Bickell, Graduate Intern at the Getty Conservation Institute and PhD candidate with the research network NACCA (New Approaches in the Conservation of Contemporary Art) join hosts John Robinette (@CargaLatina), Robin Bauer Kilgo (@rbkilgo) and Amanda Robinson (@ARobKabob) to report on their ongoing research on the subject and explain why exactly we should let go of this notion.
Resources discussed in the chat, as well as additional material, can be found in the Documents Exchange on the ARCS Forum.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org and Adrienne email@example.com and @reid_insures_art.
