Art Business / Street Vending Help
« Last post by SpencerSalan on May 23, 2017, 09:44:06 PM »
I'm an amateur artist from Maryland and I'm curious if it is legal to set up a table on the sidewalk to sell paintings. I'm sure this discussion has come up before but I can't seem to find the thread. I make small acrylic ink paintings on watercolor paper. Any help figuring out if I need location or vendong permits would be greatly appreciated. I was under the impression that I was covered under the first amendment to sell art but I'm seeing some articles that say otherwise.  I'm also curious about the rules in Baltimore or the national mall. Thanks for your help!
