Center for Art Law

At the crossroads of visual arts and the law.

Corporate Sponsorship Opportunities

The Center for Art Law brings together diverse groups of legal practitioners and students, artists and creative entrepreneurs, and many arts and culture professionals, forming part of a great art law community across all continents. With the support of companies, nonprofit organizations, and law firms that advance the art law space, the Center continues to grow its offerings by hosting educational programs and working with students and graduates from all over the United States, coming from schools such as Bowdoin College, Columbia, Harvard, Georgetown, Brown, New York University and Vanderbilt––just to name a few.

In 2021, for the third year in a row and with the help of our wonderful sponsors, the Center provided stipends to its class of Summer interns, both in the US and abroad. The Center’s archives are continually enriched by articles, handbooks and recordings for the benefit of the future legal talent serving artist and enrichment of the creative industries.

This year, the Center launched a second Visual Artists’ Legal Clinic and inaugurated the Judith Bresler Fellowship. We are planning to do so much more and we invite you to come with us on this journey.

With our operations now hybrid, with some of our interns working remotely and some in the office, we, like many other nonprofit organizations, have more challenges to overcome and we rely on the generous patronage of legal and financial industries. We need you to make our work go further and do more for the members of the art and law communities!

“I would have never imagined that I could still have a meaningful summer during Covid-19, so I am immensely grateful for the opportunity that was given to me by the Center to learn more about art law and the intricacies of the art world.”

“The Center for Art Law is one of the best resources in the art law industry for the in-depth analysis of significant developments, review of books/publications and informative presentations. The Center’s written content is top-quality, well-researched, informative, relevant and timely. Besides the written materials, the Center and its founder, Irina Tarsis, are known to put together excellent educational seminars on a wide range of topics from artists’ rights to cultural repatriation.

It is also particularly helpful to practitioners that the Center aggregates information on key art law events worldwide that are put together by other organizations. This feature make the Center a go-to resource for art law events. I would highly recommend that anyone in the art and art law industry should subscribe to the Center’s publications and make time to attend their events in order to stay up-to-speed with the developments and get the benefit of the Center’s research and analysis on the developing issues of significance
