The market for insurance that caters to the arts community has been shaken up by the economic shocks that have taken place over the last seven years or so. Many old companies that were old stand-by’s are gone.
As an artist, you can always talk to a conventional insurance provider to get you the kind of insurance you might need for an open studio event, a show, or for ongoing insurance to provide you with the niche coverage you need to protect you from loss. Right?
It is nice to have someone who understands you. This is why I am happy to provide you with a great company that understands the needs of artists from different media. Many artists are already using this great company and the fees are affordable for event coverage. The name of the company is ACT Insurance, which stands for Artists Crafters & Tradesmen.
The company has two main choices the artists can choose from: event coverage and ongoing policy coverage. And as you might expect from a company like this, they understand that insurance for us often needs to be non-site specific, which is nice.
I suggest that your read through their list of exclusions before deciding on moving forward. If you do sculpture that is part of an installation process, for example, ACT wont cover you. The nice thing is that their web site is very easy to navigate and you can go through their information quickly. You can call them at 888.568.0548 and you can click to them here: Insurance For Artists
Here’s to a great new year!
