On January 6, 1993, continuing its tradition of off-site meetings, the American Association of Law Schools (A.A.L.S.) Art Law Section left San Francisco and crossed the Bay Bridge to hold its annual meeting and field trip at the Oakland Museum. The program was entitled "California Art Legislation Goes Federal." Because the Visual Artists Rights Act of 1990 (VARA) has its historic roots in legislation pioneered in California, we took this opportunity to gather individuals who could review that history and offer some insights into the future of artists' rights at the federal level.
