Looking forward to Monday's conference in Chicago at DePaul University College of Law, Center for Art, Museum & Cultural Heritage Law, entitled "Restitution and Repatriation: the Return of Cultural Objects." Lynn Nicholas, author of The Rape of Europa is the keynote speaker. If you like what you see at the Art Law Report-or even if you don't-I hope you will introduce yourself. I expect good attendance from some heavy hitters in the field.
Next month's symposium at DePaul University College of Law Center for Art, Museum & Cultural Heritage Law entitled "Restitution and Repatriation, the Return of Cultural Objects" looks terrific. The keynote speaker will be Lynn Nicholas of The Rape of Europa fame, and other topics include provenance research, museum acquisitions, and the moral and ethical quandaries posed by restitution and repatriation claims. The speaker lineup includes museum professionals and attorneys. Hope to see you there.
