A few months ago, we sat down with our clients Mary Ouimette-Kinney and Larry Kinney of the University Heights Arts Association to learn more about their programs and their experience as an arts organization trying to expand their reach within the community, while also protecting their intellectual property interests.
The University Heights Arts Association (UHAA) is a business that generates free art opportunities using under-utilized spaces and recycled or discarded materials.
Now, Ms. Ouimette-Kinney and Mr. Kinney are back at LoTempio Law to show us their latest exhibit, the Art Without Boundaries Program, by Diane Menchetti.
