March 9 Panel Discussion on Graffiti and Its Place in the Legal Scheme of Society
March 03, 2011 –While modern-day graffiti has won recognition by some as a legitimate art form deserving of gallery shows, it remains for others a form of vandalism to be discouraged by legal controls on its location and materials.
The Art Law Society is a student-run group dedicated to providing opportunities for discussion of leading topics in this growing legal field. The organization recently hosted a presentation on “Stolen Art: Litigating Holocaust-era Expropriation Claims,” a video of which can be found at http://lawevents.rutgers.edu/events/artlaw11/.
“The Art Law Society has done a very effective job of raising the awareness of the law school and the greater Newark artists’ community to current legal issues affecting artists,” said Associate Dean and Director of the Law Library Carol Roehrenbeck, who teaches Art Law Seminar. “Last year the organization hosted a program titled ‘The Repatriation of African Art: the Benin Bronzes’ and another on art title insurance.”
