Create without concern.
Insurance designed for artists.

From dance and performance art to film and photography, Lockton Affinity Artist provides important coverage for artists in a variety of professions.

Art and Equipment Insurance

A damaged canvas, a broken soundboard, a torn costume—the equipment, instruments and tools that help you create deserve the best protection. So does your finished product. From traditional fine art to modern installation pieces and beyond, Art and Equipment Insurance protects your equipment, completed artworks or artworks undergoing installation.

Coverage includes:

Policy limits up to $1 million for rented or owned equipment and instruments you use to create

Policy limits up to $1 million for your artwork while it’s created, shipped or installed

International shipments, even with commercial shippers, depending on coverage in your shipping contract

Individual equipment valued over $25,000 and artwork valued over $10,000 is covered but must be listed to be included in your policy limit
