Visual Arts Summit

Maple LeafCanadian sculptress Julianna Yau is attending the Visual Arts Summit in Canada and she reports that an historic agreement has been reached between the museum community and artists’ organisations over fees for the exhibition of artworks. They've also agreed to work toward establishing an Exhibition Right Fund, similar to the Public Lending Right Fund which pays the authors of books issued by public libraries. Click the title link to read Julianna's account (look for the A+ button to increase the tiny font and click it 6 times). I'd direct you to the official Visual Arts Summit website, but it's boring rubbish, a perfect example of how NOT to try selling art to the public.
