Here’s a testimonial from our same event in Greeley earlier this year: “CAFTA's Art + Law Event was a great opportunity for an attorney to think through different aspects of representing artists. The presenter was knowledgeable and engaging, and the entire day was well organized. It was also great to have an event where attorneys and artists could engage together.”
