Colloquium on Law, Cultural Patrimony and the International Art Trade

Published February 20, 2016

On Tuesday, February 23, the FSU Department of Art History hosted a Colloquium on Law, Cultural Patrimony, and the International Art Trade.  This event was organized in conjunction with the exhibition Cuban Art in the 20th Century — Cultural Identity and the International Avant-Garde, which runs through March 27 at the FSU Museum of Fine Arts.  The featured panelists were Dr. Michael Carrasco and Dr. Preston McLane from the Department of Art History, Prof. Fernando Tesón from the FSU College of Law, and Mr. Ramón Cernuda, President and CEO of Cernuda Arte in Miami, and the principal in the landmark art law case of Cernuda v. Heavy (S.D. Fla. 1989).  More than eighty students and guests from the community joined in discussion of art and cultural patrimony law, ethical considerations in the art market, and trade restrictions on cultural property, with particular emphasis on U.S. – Cuban relations in the 20th century.
