We understand that as artists, you would much rather spend your time creating art than planning for what will happen to your art and assets after you’re gone. Many choose to ignore the problem altogether. However, doing so leads to undesirable consequences. What can happen if you don’t plan your estate? Many of us know the case of Mark Rothko, whose work was sadly misappropriated. At best, your art will be misallocated. At worst, it will be discarded. Few people want their life’s work thrown in a dumpster. Fortunately, by planning your estate and/or preparing your will, you can protect your work from that fate.
