What can an artist expect when presented with a public art contract? How might a contract with a foreign governmental entity, or for a temporary installation, differ from a domestic sale or permanent installation? What provisions should the artist review carefully when negotiating the responsibilities of each party?|
Krista Mirhoseini will cover contractual considerations for public art purchases, loans, and installations, including engineering and site preparation, payment terms, insurance and risk of loss, shipping, indemnification provisions, and intellectual property rights. Ruri Yampolsky will follow up with an overview of contracts that an artist might see from a public entity. She will touch on what are considered "best practices" among public art administrators and how that will impact the artists' contracts.
