PAST: PANEL: "Art X Law" Panel with Artists & Lawyers Tonight at Affinity Lab U St! Mixer 6:00pm, Panel 7:00pm - 8:30pm, Free

Art X Law - Mixer & Panel Discussion
Monday, August 16th
6:00pm - 8:30pm
Please RSVP on eventbrite

You are invited to a salon discussion on public art, street art & the legalities surrounding it from the point of view of street artists, lawyers and DC government. Hosted by Max Fowler Cohen and Ally Behnke with support from the fabulous folks over at ReadysetDC. Mixer starts at 6:00pm, food and beer will be available for a small donation. Panel with artists and lawyers will begin at 7:00pm.

From the facebook invite "What kind of messages are sent to the community when street art is in a public space vs. on an abandoned building. What is the 'code' behind street art? And what was the deal with Whole Foods covering up legal, commissioned street artwork (see before and after pics here) by local favorite GAIA, as discussed in Worn Magazine's recent hot-button blog post? We'd also really like to take the conversation into the realm of copyright law, and the intersection between street culture and intellectual property, so if you have friends who like to geek out about copyright issues, be sure to let them know."
