Since it was founded as LegalArt in 2003, LegalARTLink has been a vital resource in supporting the artists to protect their work and empower their careers.

What is LegalArtLink?

 A Miami-based legal aid and education program that serves artists and arts organizations throughout the state of Florida.

How much do I have to pay if I’m an artist that wants legal help?

 An annual Locust Projects membership fee of $60 (pARTner level)

What do I receive through LegalArtLink?

 Access to legal advice and information, referrals to pro-bono attorneys, and one-on-one legal counseling and professional development workshops on a broad range of legal issues including estate planning, family law, immigration, contracts, business law, real estate, taxes, copyright, trademark, and more. 


The program is open to artists and arts organizations of all disciplines and has assisted hundreds of painters, sculptors, composers, authors, choreographers, singers, multidisciplinary artists, and more, since it was founded—eighty-percent of whom were based in Miami.
