27 | 1:00-2:00 p.m. • Tom Maddrey Presentation | Art History Auditorium | Sprint from the Starting Line: A Legal Guide for Artists  It is daunting being an artist and getting ready to step out into the world. Business to marketing, contracts to copyright, there is a giant learning curve when you take your passion to your profession. For over a decade, Tom Maddrey was a commercial and fine art photographer, owning his own businesses, and being exhibited in galleries and museums. But he set that aside to go to law school and now is the managing partner of a firm focused on artists and creatives. In this session, Tom will talk frankly about his experiences as an artist, what he learned about marketing and business, and what you need to do to make sure you are on the right side of the law when leaving your artistic mark on the world.
