ASSUMPTION OF RISK AND WAIVER OF LIABILITY
All applicants, for themselves and on behalf of their successors and assigns, acknowledge by signing below that they are solely responsible for their actions and activities during or arising from their participation in Plein Air Grand Marais. They also acknowledge:
Plein air painting in parks, wilderness, or other areas lacking services or facilities, or on rocks, cliffs, near water, near traffic, or anywhere else outdoors carries an inherent risk of accidents, and they knowingly assume the risk of such accidents, which could cause damage, injuries, or death.
They will not hold Outdoor Painters of Minnesota, Johnson Heritage Post Art Gallery, Cook County Historical Society, or any of their respective directors, employees, volunteers, or other agents, liable for accidents, which could cause damage, injury, or death. Applicants' participation in Plein Air Grand Marais is a fair bargain constituting good and valuable consideration for this agreement.
The waiver of liability in this agreement applies to all claims up to and including ordinary negligence, but excludes claims for gross negligence, recklessness, or intentional acts. Pursuant to Minnesota law under Minn. Stat. § 604.055, nothing in this agreement purports to release, limit, or waive the liability of one party for damage, injuries, or death resulting from conduct that constitutes greater than ordinary negligence.
