Street Art and Copyrights: What Muralists, Business Owners and the Public Need to Know

Artist: Hiero Veiga (@hieroveiga) Colfax Canvas 2020

Colfax Canvas Mural Festival is partnering with Colorado Attorneys for the Arts (CAFTA) to talk all things copyright and how it intersects with street art in a community. Bring your burning questions, such as: Who owns the copyright in a mural? What rights does the artist have? What rights does the building or business owner have? What about photographing or sharing an image of the mural? This interactive workshop is designed for artists, property managers, business owners and the public to learn together.

This is a free event at The People’s Building. Registration is strongly encouraged to attend in-person. Masks are mandatory inside The People’s Building if not actively eating or drinking. This event will also be live-streamed on the Colfax Canvas Facebook page.
