In a setting that is supportive and encouraging, this workshop aims to assist artists in preparing for their own artistic legacy or that of a loved one.  Through stories, conversations, exercises and discussion, the workshop prepares its participants to deal with the physical contents of their studios and the emotional dimensions of their legacy. 

Saturday  1 - 4 pm

Desired Outcomes:  Artists and allies who are better prepared to make their own decisions about handling an artistic legacy, because of better understanding of the issues and the opportunity to reflect in a supportive setting.
