Northeastern University School of Law
250 Dockser Hall

This provocative panel discussion focused on the challenges and hopeful future for public art and activism in light of a legal regime that remains stuck in outdated paradigms of intellectual property and market models. Two artists, a city art curator and an attorney discussed their personal experiences with public art projects, the interesting problems they have encountered and successes that could serve as models going forward.

Our venue for this discussion, Northeastern University, has been a leader in supporting public art over the past decade, reflecting its commitment to social justice and community activism.

We welcome lawyers from the CSUSA community and anyone who is interested in participating in this discussion, which will be part presentation and part brainstorming about how to support the public art of the future.
