Descriptive Entry
Descriptive Entry
These records document the organization, design, and promotion of exhibits. Major traveling exhibitions represented include "Fred E. Miller: Photographer of the Crows," "Kids Bridge," "Millennium Messages," "An Ocean Apart: Contemporary Vietnamese Art from the United States and Vietnam," and "VanDerZee Photographer (1886-1983)." The last box contains records documenting proposed exhibitions that were never realized or were carried through to completion but did not travel. These records were retained because they raised specific issues with regard to the process for selection or rejection of proposed exhibitions.
Materials include correspondence, memoranda, planning documents, exhibit proposals, research notes and materials, letters of agreement, floor plans, releases, itineraries, contracts, exhibition booking agreements and contracts, object loan agreements, packing instructions, budgets, object lists, label copy, press releases, press kits, catalogues and other published materials, education kits, videos, CD Rom, scripts, label copy, condition reports, clippings, and installation and object photographs, and slides.
