About the Center for Art Law
The Center for Art Law is a Brooklyn-based nonprofit organization at the crossroads of the visual arts and the law. Its mission is to provide training and insights into the multidisciplinary field of art law by ensuring that legal resources related to visual arts and cultural heritage are centrally aggregated and easily accessible. The Center serves artists and students, academics and legal practitioners, collectors and dealers, government officials and professionals in related fields around the world. As part of its research and education mission, it operates in three capacities: through its website; via a monthly electronic newsletter; and with a range of cultural and educational events including conferences, studio tours, and film screenings.
