Mine, Yours, Theirs, Ours? Ownership and Stewardship in the Age of Blockchain

Thursday, April 20, Harvard Art Museums and Art & Antiquities Blockchain Consortium are pleased to present a conversation with artist and professor Kevin McCoy and writer, economist and professor Amy Whitaker about ownership and stewardship of cultural property in the 21st century. They will explore how blockchain technologies can assist in more inclusive and equitable models in the art market. Ruth Streeter, a 2021 Advanced Leadership Initiative Fellow at Harvard and former producer of "60 Minutes," will moderate this discussion. This conversation will consider the current status of art ownership and if and how blockchain technology could be useful in crafting a new, more equitable model of ownership.

Admission is free, but seating is limited. Advance reservations are encouraged. Walk-in visitors are always welcome, if space allows. Please note that a standby line will be available for those without reservations. The lecture will take place in Menschel Hall, Lower Level. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. at the 480 Broadway entrance.
