Lawyers work hard at what they do. It’s a common joke that we spend so much time working that our “hobby” is reading legal briefs. For some of us trial attorneys, cases can stretch on for years, invading our personal lives and interests. What the difference between a good lawyer and a bad lawyer? A bad lawyer makes the case drag on for years. A good lawyer makes it last even longer.
In the spirit of putting a larger barrier between our professional and personal lives, we’ve created Colorado Lawyers for the Arts. No, this isn’t a NFPO, nor is it a council or board you can sit on to boost your credentials. This is a site devoted to artistic endeavors lawyers around Colorado might enjoy – specifically, the arts. Here, you’ll find information about art programs, museums, theaters, galleries, and restaurants we love in the Denver and Boulder areas.
Note that some of the stuff we highlight on this site will have some tie-in with what draws us to the legal profession, whether it’s something heady like a specific book or an art exhibition embroiled in legal controversy. It won’t all be artists suing galleries or museums restructuring for tax purposes. We’ll highlight some of our favorite artistic endeavors just for the fun of it, too.
