Product Highlights
  • By Tad Crawford

The Allworth Press title, Legal Guide for the Visual Artist, Fifth Edition helps brave artists who've decided to go into business for themselves. Far from just making art all day long, being a working artist requires keen business skills and a team of legal and financial help, from attorneys to your tax preparer. This book by Tad Crawford teaches you what you need to know: A. how to stay out of hot water, and B. what to do when you find yourself in it. Other less sinister topics, such as necessary model releases and forms for contracts and the like, are included in the book as well. As is information on how to find artists' groups and volunteer lawyers for arts organizations. Additional help is provided for learning basic negotiation strategies.

Revised and updated, the "Legal Guide for the Visual Artist," is more than an enlightening read, it's a reference book that you'll want to keep close at hand for use in daily business affairs. New to the book, you'll find information about legal issues facing the visual artist today, a detailed look at developments in copyright law, changes in laws that protect artists in artist-gallery relationships, a look at First Amendment protections for graffiti art, and information on the sale of art in public spaces. Other topics in the book include taxation, estate planning, museums, grants, leases, and a myriad of other pertinent subject matter.
