Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

My papers, letters, exhibition catalogs, book manuscripts, and art project documents have been incorporated in the collection of the Archives of American Art of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC.   The curators of the Archives wrote me how “thrilled they were to have such interesting materials.”

The Smithsonian Institution's Archives of American Art is the world’s pre-eminent and most widely used research center dedicated to collecting, preserving, and providing access to primary sources that document the history of the visual arts in America.

Founded on the belief that the public needs free and open access to the most valuable research materials, the collections are available to the thousands of researchers who consult original papers at our research facilities or use our reference services remotely every year, and to millions who visit us online to access detailed images of fully digitized collections.

Through collecting, preserving, and providing access to the collections, the Archives inspires new ways of interpreting the visual arts in America and allows current and future generations to piece together the nation’s rich artistic and cultural heritage.
