Artist Legacy and Estate Planning Clinic

The Artist Legacy and Estate Planning Clinic and its affiliated programming seek to connect artists, estate administrators, attorneys, tax advisors, and other experts to create meaningful and lasting solutions for expanding the art canon and art legacy planning. The Clinic offers information, referrals, and general guidance to emerging and established artists looking to find resources and advice for art legacy planning.

In addition to one-on-one pro bono consultations, the Clinic will offer primers on how to start assessing the physical and IP assets artists create throughout their lives and how their works and influence can have a lasting impact on their community, contemporaries, and generations of artists and viewers.


If you are interested in volunteering for the clinic as an artist, dealer, or attorney, please fill out the volunteer interest form below.
