Washington Lawyers for the Arts supports the work of artists, whose work enriches the quality of life in the state and strengthens the arts community. The philosophy of this service organization is to establish a bridge between the arts and legal communities so that artists and arts organizations are better able to handle the legal and business aspects of their careers. As the legal profession focuses attention on the unique challenges affecting the arts community, the law will become more responsive to the needs of the artists. The organization is committed to providing preventive education and advocates in the arts community.
