Professor Stephen Urice Participates in Three Panel Discussions in San Francisco


As part of the continuing dissemination efforts of the Aspen Institute's National Study of Artist-Endowed Foundations, Professor Stephen Urice participated in three panel discussions in San Francisco recently. The de Young museum hosted the first panel titled “The Artist as Philanthropist: Artist-Endowed Foundations as a New Force in Cultural Philanthropy.” Professor Urice also participated in a dinner and panel discussion hosted by art collector Sally Wright for an audience of twenty prominent, San Francisco-based artists who are considering establishing a foundation during their lifetimes. Finally, Professor Urice participated on a panel at Crown Point Press for invited surviving family members of deceased artists who are deciding whether an independent foundation is an appropriate way to care for and educate the public about the work of the artist whose works they have inherited. Professor Urice teaches courses in Elements of the Law, Trusts & Estates, Art Law, Museum Law, and Cultural Property Law and seminars primarily in Art, Museum, and Cultural Property law. He lectures nationally and internationally on cultural heritage law and policy and has served on the faculty and planning committee of the American Law Institute's course of study Legal Issues in Museum Administration for many years.
