Founder and President, The Art of Perception, Inc

The Art of Perception: Seeing What Matters Now

What do the FBI, CIA, and NATO have in common with Art Law Day? In her highly participatory presentation, Ms. Herman will use the analysis of works of art as a vehicle to enhance observation, perception, and communication skills. In the pandemic’s shift to a virtual platform, effective communication with stakeholders, in both litigation and transactional practice, is paramount. Participants will reconsider their critical inquiry skills and ability to communicate effectively in a variety of scenarios in the field of art law, including appraisals, client relationships, forgeries, and bankruptcies. Works of art will also be engaged as tools to understand assumptions that impede best practices and decision making. Prepare to have your eyes opened when you did not even know they were closed.

Amy Herman is a lawyer and art historian who uses works of art to sharpen observation, analysis, and communication skills. Looking closely at works of art, she helps individuals hone their visual intelligence, and recognize the most pertinent information and biases that impede decision making and best practices. She developed The Art of Perception to improve medical students’ observation and communication skills when she was the Head of Education at The Frick Collection in New York City for over ten years. She adapted the program for a wide range of professionals including the NYC Police Department, the FBI, the State Department, Fortune 500 companies, NATO, and the military. Ms. Herman has a BA from Lafayette College, a JD from George Washington University, and an MA in art history from Hunter College. Her book, Visual Intelligence, was on the best sellers’ lists of theNew York Times and Washington Post.
