California Lawyers for the Arts is proud to present our first annual San Diego based symposium on April 6th, 2019, in collaboration with Thomas Jefferson Law School. This inaugural event titled, Intersections: Art and Law at the Border, will examine the intersection of art praxis and legal issues with a focus on the border region. We invite artists, lawyers, scholars, and students to explore, complicate, and expand our understandings of how art and law intermingle in form, ownership, exhibition and dissemination, as well as the public's relationship to art and art institutions through a legal lens.
Details will be released soon. Please register for our Symposium e-mail list for updates on when registration opens and speakers schedule is released.

Jimmy Santiago Baca, Jimmy Santiago Baca, the conference artist-in-residence, is a prolific writer whose published works include 18 books of poetry, fiction and nonfiction. A Place to Stand, his best selling memoir that was turned into a documentary, describes growing up as an orphan in New Mexico and learning how to read and write poetry in prison. His most recent work, When I Walk Through That Door, I Am: An Immigrant Mother's Quest for Freedom, traces the journey of an immigrant woman searching for her four-year-old son after being separated at the US-Mexico border. A winner of the American Book Award, the Pushcart Award, an honorary doctorate from the University of New Mexico and numerous other honors, he facilitates writing workshops worldwide in prisons, youth detention facilities and alternative schools for at risk youth. After writing a Mexican Roots series for HBO, he established a non-profit, Cedar Tree, Inc. that provides free books through its bookmobile and sends interns to assist teachers in rural communities. During his residence at the upcoming Arts in Corrections conference at Santa Clara University, he will present a key note address, teach a poetry class and provide a training program for artists teaching in correctional institutions.
