From Artnet News: " The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago is hosting an event with the Art Dealers Association of America, Sept. 8, 2008, 6-8 pm, designed to draw public attention and support to the 'Artist Museum Partnership Act,' which is currently languishing in Congress. .... The event marks the kick-off of ADAA’s '50 Artists for 50 States' campaign, for which the organization is attempting to arrange donations of works from artists to institutions in all 50 states, as a way to show the public benefits of the proposed law, which would allow artists to write off the 'fair market value' of works when donating them to nonprofits."

I posted some thoughts on the plan earlier this summer here.
