Arts Council of Williamson County: February’s “Brown Bag Lunch Bunch” w/ Carol Hagen, Curatorial Management System

Arts Council of Williamson County announces February’s “Brown Bag Lunch Bunch” guest speaker, Carol Hagen, Curatorial Management System.

The Arts Council of Williamson County’s ‘Brown Bag Lunch Bunch’ will meet on Friday, February 13, from 11 am – 1 pm at the Williamson County Public Library (main conference room), 1314 Columbia Pike in Franklin.

Carol Hagen will speak about the reasons why "artists should take a serious interest in documenting their art work" and why it is important to the artist, their clients and their legacy. Accurate documentation enables families to understand what artists were doing all those hours they were locked up in their studios. Carol states: "Many spouses and children of professional artists and collectors are left with artwork, collectibles, and novel tools that they do not know how to appreciate or take care of. Documentation enables artists to tell their loved ones what may be considered an heirloom and why. Importantly, documentation empowers your family to sell art work to pay for bills at a time when they are overwhelmed with loss and responsibility."

Carol will cover:

· Why it is to the advantage of the artist to set the tone for how galleries, collectors, and curators document their artwork.

· What manner of documentation protects the artist and collector in cases of fire and theft.

  • 'What is an artist's legacy in 2008?' 'Do you consider your private collection part of your estate plan?'

‘Supplies for Soldiers’ collection continues again this month. The Arts Council is collecting supplies for troops stationed in Iraq. They will be collecting simple, everyday supplies for them (preferably something easy to ship). You bring the supplies, they'll get them to the soldiers.

Grab your lunch and join them for a lunchtime of artistic fun and camaraderie. You provide your lunch; they’ll provide the location! The Arts Council’s ‘Brown Bag Lunch Bunch’ meets 2nd Friday of most months.
