B&B Programs, a division of San Diego-based Barney & Barney LLC that is responsible for national program and wholesale insurance distribution, has launched the Art Elite Insurance Program to underwrite and insure fine art collections for museums, galleries and dealers. Coverage is available nationwide.
B&B Programs has engaged Chicago-based O’Connell International Arts to provide specialty claims and loss control services, and carrier OneBeacon Insurance to provide specialty coverage for the fine art collections of cultural institutions, art galleries, art dealers, community museums and art service operations. The Art Elite program connects underwriters, fine art loss adjusters, fine art risk managers and fine art conservators who understand the unique risks faced by fine art collectors and handlers, the company said.
