At this unprecedented time, the team at Art Law & More would like to extend a special message of thanks and support to all our readers. We are thinking of you and hoping that each of you are keeping safe and well.
While the doors of art galleries and museums remain closed, we thought you might enjoy a little light cultural relief in the form of our very first Art Law & More Quiz. The quiz will lead you on a hunt through some of our most newsworthy blog posts of the past few years in a bid to piece together a quote from beloved American artist, Dorothea Tanning, which reminds us how art can shine a light in the bleakest of times.
But wait, there’s more.
By participating in the quiz, you will be helping to support The Rainbow Trust, Boodle Hatfield’s Charity Partner of the year. In current times, charities need our help and support more than ever. The Rainbow Trust supports families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness and need bespoke support. To support The Rainbow Trust’s vital work, for every participant in the Art Law & More Quiz, Boodle Hatfield will donate £5 to The Rainbow Trust, subject to a maximum of £500.
Art law nostalgia, charitable giving – this is the quiz we all need right now!
