Center for Art Law

At the crossroads of visual arts and the law.

Corporate Sponsorship

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 working with students and graduates from all over the United States, coming from schools such as Columbia, Harvard, Georgetown, Brown, and New York University––just to name a few.

In 2020, for the second year in a row and with the help of three firms, the Center provided modest stipends to its class of Summer interns. Together, they published a total of 10 articles, prepared 3 monthly newsletters, wrote over 40 case summaries, and planned 3 online events all while working from 5 different states. 

“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.”

This year, the Center launched a Visual Artists’ Immigration Clinic and plans to do so much more. Now that operations are all remote and interns are working from home, we, like many other nonprofit organizations, rely on the generous patronage of those who can.
