Conducting an art exhibition requires thoughtful contemplation and preparation for the potential of unforeseen events such as theft and damage to or destruction of valuable artworks during transportation and while at the exhibition venue. Although losses are rare, they can be very expensive. Purchasing art insurance provides peace of mind for the one-time event or continuous traveling exhibition. Coverage can be written to include all artwork that is in transport or held in storage and can include packing crates, catalogues, and brochures. Fine art insurance protection will feature coverage for solely- and jointly-owned artworks on a worldwide basis, from the time they are received to the time they are returned, at specified locations as well as other, unnamed locations. Policies can be enhanced to include reference libraries, furniture, and fixtures on either a blanket or scheduled basis. Coverage can also include protection against loss due to earthquake, flood and windstorm damage.
