more than one piece of Artwork, the Retail Value for each piece shall be listed with the description of the
Artwork on Exhibit A and made a part hereof.

        9.        Indemnity. The Artist shall indemnify and hold Mad Art harmless from and against any
and all liabilities, losses, damages, costs, and expenses of any kind (including, without limitation,
