50th Anniversary Gala
Fifty years ago a small group of lawyers who care about the arts and the community in which they live began to volunteer their services to help and protect the local arts community. From that core idea, VLA was founded and has flourished for five decades, providing vital legal representation and education to those who cannot otherwise afford it. This year we celebrate the achievements of all the volunteer lawyers, VLA and VLA staff in helping to preserve and protect the arts community in New York.

 

Special thanks to New York artist Aaron Wexler. 
Open Book Series #18, 2017.
