In recent weeks, two potentially important bills that would establish significant rights in favor of artists were re-introduced in the United States Congress. One, the Artist-Museum Partnership Act, would allow artists (as well as writers, composers, and others) to receive charitable tax deductions for donations of self-created work to museums, libraries, and other qualified charitable organizations. The other, the American Royalties Too (ART) Act, which is more controversial, would establish a federal artist’s resale royalty right, under which visual artists would receive a percentage royalty upon the resale of their work.Artist-Museum Partnership ActOn Apr. 14th, Sen.

Getty Images.“‘Cokey Flo’ Brown,” Levy explained, although the name meant nothing to Kornbluth. She was a heroin addict and a former madam and an inmate in the Women’s House of Detention awaiting sentence on a prostitution charge. She was also a Dewey witness who’d earlier that day taken the stand and given damaging testimony about a series of supposed meetings between Luciano and his co-defendants David Betillo, Thomas “the Bull” Pennochio and James Frederico—the alleged purveyors of a citywide prostitution racket.

POLITICS 07/11/2018 05:48 am ET As David Koch retires, his lesser-known relatives seem (mostly) uninterested in replacing him.
