Statues and Statutes: When is Public Art a Public Law?

April 2, 2020 | 12-1:30 p.m.
UR Downtown: 626 East Broad Street, Suite 100, Richmond

The Carrico Center continues its popular Law Over Lunch CLE series with a program that takes a deeper look at how state laws and local ordinances affect how public art is defined and when it is protected.

Public art is defined and explained by various groups, including both art collectives and city governance bodies. Often, there is an emphasis on community benefit, plural values, and landscape enhancement. Questions arise though when there is concern about who constitutes the public, which voices are heard in the selection processes, and the accessibility and appropriateness of the art across populations. These issues surface and are addressed in governmental policies, state statutes, and community discourse.

Allison Tait, Associate Professor at the University of Richmond School of Law will share more on public art’s intersection with public laws – and the changing landscape for both.
