Printing Unknown artists uncopywrited pieces

So I'm possibly about to begin a world tour searching for unknown artists to bring to light.  With this I will be needing to print their pieces here in the states.  I'm wondering if anyone knows if there are any hoops I must jump through in order to "A" bring their artwork into the country, and "B" what kind of permission do I need from the artists to get this done.  Do they need to be copyrighted first? if so can I do that or does it have to be done by the artist himself. To let you know I will not be exploiting these artists, I will be working with them to get their art seen by more people. Thanks for all your help.  All is appreciated

Ryan, I'm unclear what you're asking.  If you will be buying pieces (or obtaining them on consignment), then there isn't anything legally you need to do to bring them into the states.  You may want a written agreement in place between you and the artists to clearly define each others' rights and obligations, but that's not a copyright issue per se.
