What should I be aware of when working with public or private commissioners?

When working with either public or private commissioners, it is important to have a good working relationship and a sound contract or letter of agreement clearly stating what you will do, how much and when you will be paid and what the commissioner expects in return.

For more information, watch our ArtlawTV film on site specific art commissions with artist Susanna Heron.

You might also find our article on Commissions on the main Artquest website useful for a wider view of working to commission.
