Please join us for a special opening event for Bushwick Open Studios
Weekend, an annual arts festival created by Arts in Bushwick. A stellar
panel of art lawyers will provide artists and anyone interested in art
with the basics in copyright, fair use, and artist-dealer consignment
agreements. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn and ask
questions. If you are wondering how copyright law protects
your work, whether you can legally appropriate, and what a
gallery’s legal obligations are to you -- with or without a
written contract -- this is an event not to be missed!
