2314.5 Recordation Requirements for a Visual Arts Registry Statement

 

A Visual Arts Registry Statement may be recorded with the Office, provided that the following requirements have been met:

 

• The statement is designated as a “Visual Arts Registry Statement.”

 

• The statement pertains to a work of visual art that has been incorporated in a building. See 37 C.F.R. § 201.25 (F).

 

• The statement is submitted together with the correct filing fee.

 

See 37 C.F.R. § 201.25 (C), (D).

 

As a general rule, the recordation specialist will not examine the statement or verify the accuracy or completeness of the information set forth therein. However, the specialist may refuse to record a statement if it is illegible or if it does not pertain to a work of visual art that has been incorporated in a building. See 37 C.F.R. § 201.25 (F); see also General Provisions–Registry of Visual Art Incorporated in Buildings, 56 Fed. Reg. 38,340, 38,341 (Aug. 13, 1991).
