Join us for a full Saturday of social Wikipedia editing at the first ever Art & Law edit-a-thon (drop-in any time!), organized by the Art & Law Program and The Law Office of Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento.

During this time we will create, update, and improve Wikipedia articles pertaining to art & law, including art and culture law, authentication, contracts, certificates of authenticity, The Artist's Reserved Rights Transfer and Sale Agreement, appropriation art, deaccessioning, "fair use" principles, copyright, copyleft, moral rights and the 1990 Visual Artists Rights Act, freedom of expression, property law, right of publicity and right of privacy, public art, trademarks, and legal cases, including Cariou v. Prince, Mass MoCA v. Büchel, Serra v. U.S. General Services Administration, Rogers v. Koons, Blanch v. Koons, Greenberg Gallery v. Bauman, and Kelley v. Chicago Park District.

The following artists and how their practices relate to law are also in need of articles, updates and improvements: Ai Weiwei, Michael Asher, Christoph Buchel, Lygia Clark, Dan Flavin, Andrea Fraser, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Hans Haacke, David Hammons, Donald Judd, Mary Kelly, Sherrie Levine, Santiago Sierra, Elaine Sturtevant, and of course, many more!

The following art movements and how they relate to law and language are also in need of articles, updates and improvements. They include, Pop Art, Fluxus, Conceptual Art, Institutional Critique, The Pictures Generation, and Feminist Art.

And don’t forget to write home to mom and pop. As an added bonus, we’ll have stamped-envelopes and paper available so you can write home to mom and dad and say “hi,” the old fashioned way!

Everyone is welcome to attend: artists, art historians, architects, art critics, art students, lawyers, law students, and regardless of experience. We are happy to teach you the basics of editing Wikipedia. The public is welcome to this event, and The Art & Law Program will provide light snacks and refreshments.

Working online at the intersection of WikiProject Law, Wikiproject Visual Arts, and also WikiProject Open!
