Heavy Lifting in Public Art
Public art holds a special position and power in the world. Whether found in a park, a city square, or any other place where people pass and gather everyday, public works of art connect with communities in many powerful and direct ways. Its unique nature brings with it singular legal and practical challenges that are more prominent than ever today.
To that end, join the Center for Art Law for the next Art Law Lunch Talk: Heavy-Lifting in Public Art. Sarah Odenkirk, Attorney and head of the Art law Practice at Cowan, Debaets, Abrahams, & Sheppard LLP (CA), and Kenseth Armstead, accomplished conceptual artist and member of the New York City Public Design Commission, will lead a discussion on public art, how artists and communities work and interact to have it made, and the legal landscape around them. The event is moderated by Irina Tarsis, Founder and Managing Director of the Center for Art Law.
