How Can Fair Use Help the Visual Arts Community?


The College Art Association, in conjunction with the Business & Entrepreneurship Department and Art & Art History Department at Columbia College Chicago, are proud to announce that Peter Jaszi, Professor of Law at American University and co-facilitator of the Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for the Visual Arts, will be speaking about the code and answering questions on Monday, November 9, 2015 at Columbia College Chicago.

The Code of Best Practices provides visual-arts professionals with a set of principles addressing best practices in the fair use of copyrighted materials. It describes how fair use can be invoked and implemented when using copyrighted materials in scholarship, teaching, museums, archives, and in the creation of art.

A reception will be held after the event in the adjacent Hokin Gallery, where an exhibition of interdisciplinary work from BA & BFA Students from across the country juried by Buzz Spector, organized by the Art & Art History Department and mounted by the Gallery Management Practicum is ongoing.

Attendance is free and open to the public; this un-ticketed event will be held in a space limited to 160 attendees. Light refreshments will be served.

This event is made possible by the College Art Association with a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
