Learn the nuts and bolts of art

A free, two-day arts symposium for artists and arts organizations is scheduled Nov. 14 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. and Nov.15 from 10 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. on the University of Puget Sound campus. Sessions will include information on copyrights, marketing, fundraising, financial management, using the internet for promotion, public art and portfolio building. An arts legal clinic, offered by Washington Lawyers for the Arts, will offer artists and arts organizations low-cost, private legal consultations with a lawyer. Pre-registration for all sessions is required, as space is limited. To register, contact Naomi Strom-Avila at (253) 591-5191 or nstrom-avila@cityoftacoma.org.
