Introducing the Arts Professional Development Series!

In an effort to provide artists with even more resources in the neighborhood-- we have teamed up with The Logan Square Chamber of Arts and beginning this week, we are rolling out our new professional development series.  These workshops are designed to help artists with the logistics of managing their own businesses, marketing, and promoting themselves and their art. The series will enhance your professional skills and provide opportunities to network with other local artists! 

So first up, this Wednesday, March 14, Marci Rolnik from Lawyers for the Creative Arts (LCA) will present a comprehensive overview of copyright law, licensing, and assignments. Surviving and thriving as a freelance artist means knowing what steps to take to protect your work.  To that end, Marci will also address implications of marketing your artwork online via social media and other third party websites.

This seminar, designed for freelance artists, will help you understand your legal rights in the visual arts, and will leave you with:
    •    Resources on copyright and fair use laws.

    •    Tips about linking to a site you control versus uploading directly to Facebook or other third party sites and will discuss licenses part of terms of use for these sites.
    •    Best practices and advice about submitting your work for contests and art shows and various actual and implied licenses that seem to come into play about using such artwork to market the show.
