The papers of sculptor and site-specific installation artist Elyn Zimmerman measure 34.98 linear feet and 1710.223 gigabytes, and date from 1969-2017. The collection documents the artist's life and work through correspondence, writings, project and commission files, exhibition files, teaching files, and printed material. Project and commission files comprise the majority of the collection at 18.2 linear feet and comprehensively document dozens of Zimmerman's site-specific sculptural projects and proposals for public and private sites across the United States and internationally. Items include correspondence, contracts, photographs, models, blueprints, and original sketches and drawings. The papers include a small number of born digital records, including digital images of projects, construction sites, and floorplans, as well as PowerPoint presentations. There is a 6.48 linear foot and 1710 gigabyte unprocessed addition to this collection donated in 2021 that includes biographical information, interviews, subject and project files, exhibition files and lists, photographs, writings, videos, and preliminary works of art. The addition predominantly documents the comprehensive photographic documentation of Zimmerman's works and extensive preparatory drawings. Materials date from circa 1967-2019. A portion of the addition includes born digital material.
