The Artist and the Arts Auction

On March 26, 2009, a group of artists and arts professionals met at the studio of Judith Kindler to discuss artists donations and arts organization fundraising. The discussion included artists comments about constant requests to donate, and the lack of equity when it comes to tax breaks for the artist versus collector donations.

Interesting subject. Where can one learn more about the discussion? It would be nice if participants would chime in here. Anyone?
