The Visual Artists Rights Act of 1990 and Its Impact on the Real Estate Owner

January 2015The Practical Real Estate Lawyer

Lewis Rice member Jacob W. Reby published an article in the January 2015 edition of The Practical Real Estate Lawyer. The article, The Visual Artists Rights Act of 1990 and Its Impact on the Real Estate Owner, summarizes the VARA Rights and demonstrates how they can affect owners of artwork.

The VARA Rights were enacted to, among other reasons, give an artist the right to prevent unapproved alterations or destruction of his or her artwork. These rights last for the duration of the artist's life, regardless of who owns the visual work of art.
