    Only if they had contractually agreed to use that art. The scenario would have to be something like the artist paid someone to promote their art by using it. This would be something like a dress designer agrees to provide a dress for a Hollywood actress to wear while walking the red carpet at the Oscars and instead the actress wears something else.

    Normally someone gets sued if they DO use another person's art without permission, because that can be copyright infringement.  But it would take a very specific set of circumstances for someone to get sued because they DON'T use their art.  The only example that comes to mind is if someone signs a contract with an artist that promises to use their art (and generate exposure and publicity for that artist) but fails to follow through on that contractual agreement.
