I’m president of our local art guild, and we are in the final planning stages of an art walk to be held June 21-22. There will be 6 locations within our little rural community. Someone raised the question of insurance, and though I would be inclined to go ahead without it, the majority of the members thought it was important, so we’re paying about $350 to cover the 2-day event.
As part of the festivities we had planned to have a horse drawn wagon shuttle people between galleries. Everybody loves the idea and we were going to collect $20 per day from each gallery to pay for it. Well, it turns out the carriage lady does not have insurance. The insurance guy says that it would cost way too much to cover the wagon...and she can’t just do it and say it’s not part of the art walk. My board members are saying “gee, that’s too bad...oh well”, but I really wanted that wagon! Now I have to tell the guild at the next meeting that it won’t happen. I want to say the he11 with insurance, but as president I have to be the conservative, responsible one.
Does anyone have experience or expertise in these things? Any brilliant ideas?
BTW, anyone in the southern California area is encouraged to attend. See our quicky web site at:
Just don’t pay attention to the part about the horse-drawn wagon.
