The Arts Counsel: 002 – Sandra Jones Campbell

Artists Beware: The Law Is Slippery When Wet is the theme for this episode of The Arts Counsel. We connect with artist Sandra Jones Campbell.

Visual and fine artist Sandra Jones Campbell discusses her inspiration and resulting artwork, a form that has touched millions. At the same time, her experiences allow an exploration of multiple issues that artists confront, from the nature of art as an extension of oneself and the legal system’s limited protection for moral rights in the artist’s creations, to the nature of the creative process with art as inspired by other art forms, to the nitty gritty of having to do business deals and the pitfalls inherent in deals with art being copied and sold abroad, all the way to public art and the positive and negative implications of one’s art occupying public spaces. As we meander down the copyright river in this discussion, the looming question we ask is how artists can better protect themselves in their business dealings and how the legal system can make it easier for them.
