Arts Commission announces Leveraging Creativity conference registration space filling fast       

(Indianapolis, Indiana)The Indiana Arts Commission (IAC) announced today that with just over a month to go, registration space is filling up fast for the two-day conference Leveraging Creativity: Artists, Entrepreneurship, and Intellectual Property Law, May 15 – 16, in Indianapolis.

The conference is designed to give artists entrepreneurial skills needed to advance their careers, while engaging arts administrators, lawyers, and scholars in discussion of current intellectual property issues they may encounter when working with artists. The second day of the conference will be of particular interest to lawyers who represent artists and non-profit arts organizations, and Indiana continuing legal education credit will be available for that day’s events.

“The response to early registration has been amazing, and a clear indication that artists and cultural program providers who work with artists appreciate the need to further their understanding of intellectual property issues,” said Lewis C. Ricci, IAC Executive Director.

The conference will be held at the Indiana State Museum with portions at the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art, and the Herron School of Art and Design. For more information about the conference, conference speakers, and how to register, please visit

Keynote speaker for the first day of the conference will be Laura Zabel, executive director of Springboard for the Arts, an economic and community development agency based in Minnesota. Keynote speaker for the second day of the conference will be Marybeth Peters, Practitioner and Former U.S. Register of Copyrights.

Among other presenters at the conference will be: Dr. Monika Herzig, Musician and Senior Lecturer in Arts Administration, IU School of Public & Environmental Affairs, Bloomington; Joshua Lingenfelter, Director of Marketing, Clowes Memorial Hall of Butler University, Indianapolis; Janet Bloch, Author, Artist and Education Director, Lubeznik Center for the

Arts, Michigan City; Mark S. Long, President, Long Performance Advisors, LLC, Bloomington; Shannon Linker, Director Artist Services and Gallery 924, Arts Council of Indianapolis; and Robert S. Meitus, Partner, Meitus Gelbert Rose LLP, Indianapolis.

Leveraging Creativity: Artists, Entrepreneurship, and Intellectual Property Law is produced by the Indiana Arts Commission and the Center for Intellectual Property Research at the Indiana University Maurer School of Law. Additional support is provided by Indiana University’s New Frontiers in the Arts & Humanities Program, the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

The Indiana Arts Commission is dedicated to the vision of the arts everywhere, everyday, for everyone in Indiana.
