    Art collections are not like other assets. Built upon personal vision, creativity and passion, they are difficult to evaluate, and even harder to incorporate into a comprehensive tax and financial plan. Whether you are a collector or an advisor, this CLE course will provide you with best practices to determine the ideal disposition of a collection. The course will review outcomes of buying, selling and donating collections both before and after death as well as practical considerations in collection practices.
