  • If approved for accession, Applicant grants the City of Moorhead the right to perpetually use the event, art, or idea, including, but not limited to: reproduction, posting, displaying, creation of derivative art, and documenting the event, art, or idea in any media or in any form, now known or later invented, without limitation for promotional, documentary, celebratory or any other commercial or noncommercial purposes. Applicant hereby waives any and all rights to royalty, fee or other compensation by reason of such use. Applicant will retain copyright of the public art.

The City of Moorhead may, at its sole discretion, refuse to allow consideration, placement or installation of art that it deems to be inappropriate considering the purpose and intent.
