El Paso Lawyers for the Arts is a regional support group formed by the El Paso Museum of Art to educate El Paso attorneys in legal matters relating to artists and fine arts groups, and to be able to provide legal services both professionally and on a pro bono basis to the El Paso community. The Museum desires to promote a greater working dialogue between the El Paso legal and arts communities, and sees the sponsorship of this program as a first step towards that goal.

Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento is a native El Pasoan who received his BA from UTEP, his MFA from the California Institute of Arts, and his JD from Cornell Law School. He is in practice in New York City and is an Adjunct Instructor at the Brooklyn Law School. Mr. Sarmiento is actively engaged in the promotion of professional expertise in the field of art and law and is a frequent speaker to professional groups throughout the country.
