Fresh Perspectives on Collecting Art: A Panel Discussion for Collectors and Arts Professionals
Wednesday, May 20, 6:30-7:30 pm
Free for SCNY members; $10 for non-members.
You don’t have to be rich or well-connected to build a collection of great contemporary representational art. Now that you’ve bought several pieces, do you find yourself thinking about the next piece of art you want to own?
The goal of this informal conversation is to give art lovers some useful strategies and inspiration to enhance their collections. Our knowledgeable panelists will discuss a range of topics critical to the process, including:
- Where to find more of the art you like
- How much money to spend
- How to manage and care for your collection
- Related issues such as lending to museum exhibitions, and engaging with other collectors and the media
Moderated by Peter Trippi, editor-in-chief of Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine.
