Could anyone recomend an insurance co. that would include general liability, completed products, fire damage, medical expense to others?
Thanks.

Hi michael:

I called my insurance agent, and he went through his book, and came up with a name for you for insuring artwork, artists, etc.------neither of us has had any dealings with:
huntingtontblock.com

I wouldn't even begin to guess how to compare rates for this

hope this helps

I found mine in Australia by looking at a National insurance organisation website, which had art related insurers... I don't know why, but asking around got me nowhere.

I thought I saw something regarding health insurance for artists available through ISC membership??

Does this exsist?

Hi, Michael.

I know you're in the States and this won't apply to you, but I thought I'd post this incase another Canadian searches the postings:
I just found out that Visual Arts Ontario offers studio and art transportation insurance. And here I've been paying The Co-Operators much more premium for much less coverage! Guess who's going to try to weasel out of her existing policy and take advantage of another one ;)

My suggestion is to exhaustively contact all of the artists' societies/groups/etc to which you could have membership, and ask whether they offer the type of insurance you want. VAO was (I kid you not) the only group I didn't contact... and that's only because I gave up after a while and assumed that no Canadian group to which I have access had an insurance policy for their members.

Insurance
 
Has anyone had any dealings with Chicago Appraisers Association? Their website states that they offer (for pre-set fee) appraisals of artwork for insurance purposes. Thanks.
