Institute for Women and Art
“Etched in Memory: Legacy Planning for Artists” is a one-day symposium and web resource designed to assist artists in preparing for and protecting their professional legacy through sound planning and archival practices. Aimed at New Jersey visual artists working in all media, the program will be of interest to all artists faced with the issue of building and maintaining their artistic reputations and creative output. Artists can assist their surviving partners, family and friends with decisions on financial issues and estates, as well as the disposition of their personal papers, business records and artwork. The one-day symposium will be held in the Scholarly Communication Center (SCC) at Alexander Library on the College Avenue Campus of Rutgers in New Brunswick, on Friday, March 20, 2009. Registration for the daylong symposium is free. There is a $15 charge for hospitality and a box lunch to be served during the moderated lunchtime discussions.
