Some Topics in Art and Law

Visual Arts/Law

The student will aid in the research and production of projects in the intersection of art and law, specifically how collections are named and the relationship of private names to ownership; living artists’ rights over their creative output during their lifetime; and various legal issues that come up in the life of Mesoamerican antiquities in Mexico and in the US. This will be mostly researching specific legal circumstances of various collections and studio production. I hope to have some pre-law students help me since I want to learn more about the law, and I can teach them to make and look at art.
