LAW922  A  LAW & POLICY OF CHARITABLE FOUNDATIONS CREATED BY ENTERTAINERS, ATHLETES, AND ARTISTS

Course Description
Bearing names such as Frankenthaler, Haring, Lichtenstein, Mapplethorpe, Mitchell, Pollock-Krasner, Rauschenberg, and Warhol, private foundations created by visual artists are a rapidly emerging force in cultural philanthropy and in artistic heritage stewardship. Through the lens of such foundations, this course will introduce students to legal and policy issues of nonprofit, tax-exempt entities (“501(c)(3)’s”). Artist-endowed foundations (“AEF’s”) are regulated under state law and Chapter 42 of the Internal Revenue Code (pertaining to private foundations). The course will examine these parallel sets of law and policy. (A course in federal income taxation is not a prerequisite.) AEF’s have been the focus of an 8-year research, publication and education initiative of the Aspen Institute. Ms. Vincent is the Initiative’s director; Professor Urice has been an advisor to the Initiative since inception; the Law School is now partnering with the Aspen Institute on several aspects of the Initiative. The course is an intensive, one-week, one-credit “short course.” Course materials will primarily comprise readings from the Initiative’s various publications. (See www.aspeninstitute.org/aefi.)



Short Course Attendance Policy
Due to the small number of meetings, attendance to all meetings/classes for short courses is mandatory. Students who miss more than one class session (80 minute) of a 1-credit short course are subject to administrative withdrawal and will have a W for the course on their transcripts.
