Artist Rights is a resource which serves to answer some of the questions artists, teachers, students, and reporters frequently ask us.
Here you can find easy-to-understand explanations of what art is and is not protected by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
Please help spread the word and share this website with your friends.
