Judge Block and 5 Pointz: A Life in the Arts

Wednesday, March 14
7:00 PM

Senior United States District Judge Frederic Block is not only a distinguished jurist, but he is the author of DISROBED, An Inside Look at the Life and Work of a Federal Trial Judge (2012) and his recently published "reality/fiction" thriller novel Race to Judgment (2017) (complete with his own music).  He is also the author of the recent 5 Pointz decision in which he awarded $6.7 million in damages in a case brought by a group of graffiti artists under the Visual Artists Right Act (VARA).  
   Come hear Judge Block, a member of The National Arts Club, in discussion with art law attorney Christopher Robinson, as he talks about his life on and off the bench.  Although Judge Block cannot comment on the 5 Pointz case, this is an opportunity to see the artworks at issue in the case and to explore with the judge the fascinating law underpinning the artists’ claims.
