EVENTS & LECTURES

THE INTELLECT: THE PRACTICE OF IP AS IMPACTED BY TECHNOLOGY
The Intellectual Property Law Group will host Chicago Patent Attorney Michael Greenfield of McDonnell Boehnen Hulbert & Berghoff on Nov. 14, at 12:15 p.m. in Room 120.

SEX LIES AND THE ARTS: THE CULTURE WARS FROM MAPPLETHORPE TO THE BROOKLYN MUSEUM
James F. Fitzpatrick, an alumni of IU Law School, will present his lecture "Sex, Lies, and the Arts: The Culture Wars from Mapplethorpe to the Brooklyn Museum" on Thursday, Nov. 16 at 7:00 p.m. in the Moot Court Room. The event is co-sponsored by The Kinsey Institute, The Friends of Art, The Friends of Art Bookshop, and the IU School of Law.

The intense scrutiny of the role of public and private funding for the arts in the 90's was book-ended by two highly controversial events; the Robert Mapplethorpe retrospective, "The Perfect Moment," in 1989 and the Brooklyn Museum exhibition, "Sensation" in 1999. Mr. Fitzpatrick is a Senior Partner with the Arnold Porter firm in Washington, D.C. He will discuss legal ethical, and practical aspects of funding for the arts to the accompaniment of slides of works from the two exhibitions. Lessons for the future regarding rights of free speech of the artist, the proper role of government funding of the arts, and the legitimate rights of a public who is upset over art that the government might fund are drawn from the debate.

Regarding Mayor Guiliani's unlawful cancellation of support for the Brooklyn Museum, Fitzpatrick states, "Everybody has equal rights of free speech, including those who don't like some of the art. But when a city cuts off funds to a city museum, the ultimate danger is to a free society."

SEMINAR: DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AND CHILDREN
There will be a free seminar on "Domestic Violence and Children" on Nov. 13 & 14; 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at City Council Chambers, Showers Building, 7th & Morton.

The seminar is sponsored by: Monroe County Domestic Violence Task Force; Carl Salzmann, Monroe County Prosecutor; Middle Way House; Mayor's Office, Safe and Civil City Program.
