Program Details

Unsure if you need a contract? Unsure what should be in a Contract? This SeminArt is an introduction to basic contracts for artists. Attorneys Carolann Swanson and Johnlee Curtis will outline common types of contracts professional artists use to protect and sustain their careers including gallery, commission, licensing, sale and work for hire. They will discuss the differences and requirements for written and oral contracts and how email correspondence between parties may or may not suffice as a contract. They will also provide information on how to handle contract disputes and what to do when you want to terminate a contract. You will leave the SeminArt with greater knowledge of the steps that should be undertaken to avoid contractual  problems as well as a better understanding of what contracts look like and how they can be more easily understood.

Carolann and Johnlee will be available for specific questions at the end of the program. Stick around to meet other artists and community leaders–LegalArt SeminArts are great networking opportunities!
