The Walters Art Museum will present workshops on June 12 and 19 to coincide with Baltimore Pride. The workshops, “Learn How to Build a Charitable Legacy from LGBT Icons,” will allow attendees to learn how to align estate plans with personal values, family goals, business interests and charitable legacies.
The first workshop on June 12 from 6-7 p.m. is titled “James Dean, Liberace and Others: The Wills of LGBT Icons.” From the debt-ridden estate of Oscar Wilde to the substantial fortune of Andy Warhol, the presentation includes lessons from the administration of these and other famous estates. In addition, participants will learn what provisions were made for their families and partners and how these individuals handled gifts of their tangible personal property.
The second workshop, “LGBT Lecture: Protecting Your Legacy,” takes place on June 19 from 6-7:30 p.m., which will feature a presentation on personal financial and estate planning for same-sex couples. Professional advisers will lead a panel discussion on the legal and financial issues of the LGBT community and how they can address them to ensure that their families and choices are protected.
Both events are free. To reserve a space to either or both, email firstname.lastname@example.org. The Walters Art Museum is located at 600 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.
