Community leaders from the worlds of art and law will be having an interesting discussion regarding public art during an event hosted by three organizations.

“Code GR: From Public to Private and Back Again” is set for this Thursday, October 24, at 7 p.m. at the Federal Building, 17 Pearl St. in Grand Rapids. It is sponsored by the Office of Public Culture at Grand Valley State University’s Brooks College of Interdisciplinary Studies, ArtServe Michigan, and Lawyers for a Creative Economy.

Paul Wittenbraker, GVSU associate professor of art and design, said panelists will discuss secondary uses of Alexander Calder’s “La Grande Vitesse”, including a recent ArtPrize entry.

Panelists will address intellectual property and copyright issues and how these issues highlight the intersection of public and private domains. Panelists are Tom Williams, attorney; Kendal Henry, artist and curator; and Jenny Mikulay, professor at Alverno College. Anna Campbell, GVSU associate professor of art and design, will serve as moderator.

RSVP for the event by October 23 by sending an email to johnna@artservemichigan.org or online at Art Serve Michigan.
