What a great idea. One for which I am very thankful..... Not that I need a lawyer right now but one never knows. I think I can speak for the art community when I say we are grateful to Tulsa's fine lawyers for their gift to the art community ( and for buying our work :-) Below is the news release from the Tulsa World.
Mayor Kathy Taylor said: "Art keeps a community vital and enhances the quality of life. It helps define our culture as a city."
Through the program, artists will be paired with participating attorneys to discuss legal issues and to resolve arts-related disputes outside traditional legal framework, including contracts, copyright and trademark issues, wills, trusts and estates, First Amendment issues, mediation and landlord-tenant issues.
