Derivative Work — Art as Investment Inflation

On May 15, 2012,  Artvest presented a program entitled “Art as an Investment: The Fundamentals.” Speakers’ list included:

  • Michael Plummer, Principal, Artvest Partners LLC 
  • Jeff Rabin, Principal, Artvest Partners LLC 
  • Thomas Galbraith, artnet, Director of Analytics – Art market analysis & reporting 
  • Michelle Bergeron Spell, Herrick, Feinstein LLP, Partner – Trusts & estate planning for art collectors 
  • Jodi Kimmel, Frank Crystal & Company, Senior Account Executive – Insurance, appraisals & art collection management 

The program was billed as a “half-day professional level course on navigating art investment, taught by seasoned industry leaders.” The program included overview of art lending landscape and sector performance and risk attributes, art exchanges and indexes, strategies for managing risk in various portfolio, analysis of auction house results, guarantees and much more. Imitation is a highest form of flatter, so is emulation. On April 4, 2012, Cardozo hosted a program with a strikingly similar bill — Art as Investment. The line up was as illustrious albeit smaller and the earlier panel lasted two hours.

The first program was free, including valuable CLE credits, the second came with a price tag of $395 ($350 for early registration). What does that mean? It means that either the next Art as Investment program will be estimated in excess of the latest tag or fail to sell as inauthentic.
