Richard Serra and arty laws ep 119

Hey Rubbish Fans!

Get ready for a heavyweight episode! This week, we’re diving into the life and work of the iconic sculptor Richard Serra, and the legal drama that erupted around his controversial piece, “Tilted Arc.” We’ll explore the public outcry, the fight for its removal, and the landmark court case that tested the very boundaries of artistic expression.

But that’s not all! We’ll also be taking a deep dive into the Visual Artists Rights Act (VARA) and how it protects artists’ rights. So, buckle up and prepare to be informed (and maybe a little riled up) about art, public space, and the law.
