Greetings all,

Working at a very small institution, I have limited copyright experience -
I really appreciate the discussions I read on this list! And so I'm hoping
the collective wisdom can help me with my question:

A faculty member who will speak at our end-of-the-year honors ceremony will
be referencing a Dali painting, and would like to distribute mini copies to
audience members in the programs. I assume this is something we need
permission to do, but am getting push back, so I'm asking for a second

My question: is this something you need permission for? If so, how is that
done? How do you find the rights holder for a work of art? Where do you
find a copy you can reproduce?

My suggestion was to project it on the stage, but I'm not sure that's
possible in the venue being used.

Thank you in advance,
