With the success of recent mural festivals and local mural projects in and around Sacramento, the City of Sacramento, in partnership with Sacramento City College and California Lawyers for the Arts, wants to engage artists, community members, and city government in a discussion regarding a long-term plan for murals in our city. Should the city have a mural policy? Should murals be registered throughout the city? These questions and others will be discussed over a series of six speaker sessions designed to educate, inspire, and excite us about the possibilities for our growing mural collection in Sacramento.
Please join us online for this second speaker event and be part of the dialogue. This is a free Zoom event and open to the public. Registration is on Eventbrite.
This speaker series is an opportunity to begin the conversation through educating ourselves about mural making and the laws involved with contracts, property owner rights, artist’s moral rights, intellectual property, and more. The speaker, M.J. Bogatin, will present “Murals and the Law” from his own personal perspective as an attorney who’s law practice emphasizes art, intellectual property law, and employment and labor law, among other areas. M.J. Bogatin (“Bo”) is a founding member of the San Francisco Law Firm of Bogatin, Corman & Gold, http://bcgattorneys.com/ . Bogatin, Corman & Gold’s practice emphasizes art, entertainment and intellectual property law, plaintiff’s employment and labor law, business law, personal injury, education code cases, and civil litigation and appeals. To his shock and amazement, Bo is fast approaching forty years of practice. He is a graduate of Duke University (B.A. 1975, cum laude); University of Essex, U. K.
(M.A. in Comparative Literature, 1977); and University of Denver (J.D. 1980). Since the founding of Bogatin, Corman & Gold in 1994 in San Francisco, his own practice emphasis has been Arts and Entertainment, including literary, performing, visual and multi-media transactions. He regularly handles large-scale Public Art Commissions as well as Artist Moral Rights claims. He has training and experience as a mediator; has served on the boards of directors of several Bay Area non-profit arts organizations and was a long-time Co-President of California Lawyers for the Arts. He speaks often at legal workshops on copyright, trademark, and contract issues for artists.
After the presentation, we will engage the audience with questions regarding the presentation and, more specifically, about the larger vision for Sacramento’s growing urban gallery of mural art.
