My highly successful sale of Lydia Lunch's archive to NYU received world-wide media attention, written about in The Guardian, NY Times, and online websites.
"Tom Garretson has for decades advised and assisted me in my numerous artistic endeavors. As someone who has been involved in production whether it be working with major recording labels, producing live shows, or lecturing on art history his understanding of both art and commerce is unparalleled. Tom is not only a master contract negotiator, but always understands the artist's needs and strives to achieve the most beneficial outcome for his clients. I was thrilled and amazed at his outstanding acumen in handling the sale of my vast and varied archives, which consisted of a multi-decade trove of music, art and literature. Tom handled all of my archive sale particulars, from the initial packaging to the sales pitch in the most professional manner. This resulted in attaining the highest possible price for the sale of my archives to the best purchaser, the renowned New York University. I can’t recommend his services enough.»
