The Law Portal (an art law resource)
The goal of The Law Portal is to present legal primers--relatively brief summaries of the law for non-lawyers--on matters that affect the arts, artists and arts institutions. The materials have been created by a wide variety of nonprofit organizations, government entities, and for-profit businesses. The site was created by Sandra Braman at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, with support from the Rockefeller Foundation.
It provides overviews of the range of issues of importance; laws and regulations that affect how art is made; the legal context for presenting art in public; things to think about when art is put up for sale or barter; laws and regulations that affect how artists live; legal basics, and how to make or change the law.
