THE RIGHT TO ARTISTIC EXPRESSION

In 2017, we partnered with ACLU of Minnesota to create a document on artist freedom of speech rights, that was included as part of the Resist feature article in the print version of Public Art Review issue 56. These rights remain valuable today, especially for those artists working in public for the first time.
