These records document the Cooper-Hewitt Museum exhibitions from 1974 to 1979, especially the Museum's "Museum Without Walls" project, Immovable Objects / Lower Manhattan, 1975, and the Museum's first exhibition show at the Carnegie Mansion, MAN transFORMS / Aspects of Design, 1976.
These materials were assembled by Dorothy Twining Globus, Exhibits Specialist, and Lucy Fellowes, Exhibits Researcher.
The records consist of correspondence with museum administrators, architects and designers, and interested persons concerning the exhibits, catalogues, and loans of objects. In addition, there are research notes, photographs, printed materials, budgets, newspaper and journal articles, notes taken at meetings, and blueprints and drawings. Oversize materials consist of blueprints and drawings of floor plans and layouts of the exhibits, and graphic print posters for a "metamorphic" theme (MAN transFORMS).
