May 4 | Collecting 101 | Collecting in the Long Term

Once you’ve covered the best practices in obtaining and caring for your collection, our final workshop will look to caring for your collection in the long term. This will include how-to’s on protecting, growing, and lending your collection for exhibits. Expert panelists will include preparators, insurance companies, security, and collections management.

NUMU and the Whitney Modern gallery present a series of workshops on collecting art, inspired by NUMU’s current exhibition, A Call to Collect, which features works from the collections of three Los Gatos collectors. Learn the basics of collecting art from experts across the field, including gallerists, museum professionals, and conservators. The workshops will be structured as an interactive seminar, providing participants the opportunity to ask experts practical and theoretical questions about collecting art.

Resource sheet with insurance, security, and collections management vendor contacts will be available. Online sources will also be offered at each workshop providing relevant and useful information to all participants.
