Museums and Art Galleries

Museums and Galleries generally require valuations for fair value for accounting and/or for insurance. 

Occasionally valuations are also required for accession, de-accession or for gifts under the Cultural Gifts Program. Rodney believes that the client list he has been responsible for over the last 20 years demonstrates his expertise in this space with an impressive list of Museums and Art Galleries. Rodney Hyman was also joint author of the definitive paper on the Australian framework for the valuation of public sector collections for general purpose financial reporting and published by the Council of Australasian Museum Directors (CAMD).
