The Maine Arts Commission outreach continued this month as Darrell Bulmer returned to Brunswick’s Frontier Café on Monday night to be a part of another evening of presentations to artists.

This evening concentrated on legal issues that face artists and the newly reemerged Maine Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts were on hand to demystify copyright law.

The 90 minute presentation from Charles P Bacall, Esq. from Verril Dana LLP has to be one of the most interesting presentations made to artists for a long time. The audience was instructed to bring their questions, and they followed those instructions to the letter.

At least 50 diverse questions were posed to Charles during his presentation, causing him to extend his presentation to the relief and appreciation of the 50+ audience members.

Darrell captured the entire event on two video cameras and in audio. Once the edited version is available it will be posted on our YouTube page in segments for all to access.

This evening was presented by Five Rivers Arts Alliance who has a series of workshops at Frontier this year.
