3.04 Individual Donors 1981 - 1997

Scope and Contents note

Includes records of giving by individual donors, including most trustees. After some general, chronological, and board of trustees files related to donors, folders are listed alphabetically by surname of major donors. The files in Box 254 are labeled A, B, C, etc., and contain records of miscellaneous individual donors filed alphabetically by surname. Some of these individuals have been long-time supporters, going back to the beginning of the museum and some even before that, to The Egg and The Eye Gallery. Most of these files, however, date back only to the start of the tenure of the first paid staff development officer, ca. 1988 - 1989. See also Board of Trustees Record Group.

4. Public Relations Department

Scope and Contents note

Publicity (aka Public Relations) was extremely important to the founders of the Craft and Folk Art Museum, beginning with The Egg and The Eye Gallery days. A lot of publicity was generated during The Egg and The Eye period simply by mounting exhibitions of types of objects that were unusual for an art gallery at the time (1965 - 1975) and by being a center of social activity. In other words, the gallery's reputation drew attention from the media. Other than the quarterly newsletter and mailings of announcements to people on the gallery mailing list, or those who were members of The Egg and The Eye Association, there was little structured publicity activity until the first publicist, Gail Goldberg, was hired in 1975 in conjunction with the opening of the museum. Thereafter, there was always a part-time paid publicist on staff: Nina Green, Sue Ahrends, Janet Lubkin, Denise Wakeman, Jean Miao, Heather Gore, and Blaine Mallory served this staff function. Other persons were hired from time to time to handle special P.R. situations: e.g., Carolyn Campbell and Christine Anderson Associates worked as consultants during the capital campaign. Public Relations operated as a separate department until 1990; with the start of Sue Sirkus’s tenure as Director of Development, Public Relations was folded into the Development Department. A large section of the Development Department Record Group, Administrative Series (3.01, Box 234, folder 1 - Box 237, folder 6) concerns Publicity and Marketing, some of which originated with the Development Department. Except for this latter group of files, all P.R. records through the end of 1997 are filed separately here. There is quite a bit of unavoidable duplication of P.R. documents within the archives, not only from one series to another within the Public Relations Department Record Group, but also between record groups, e.g., you will find media releases within the International Festival of Masks Record Group and the CAFAM Exhibitions Record Group, but you will also find the same media releases (as well as--in some cases--others) relating to the Festival of Masks and CAFAM exhibitions in the Public Relations Department Record Group, either in a folder for the type of event or in a chronological folder. See also the Development Department Record Group -- Publicity and Marketing series. Researchers looking for publicity concerning a specific event or program are advised to check other CAFAM record groups in addition to that of Public Relations. Many of the P.R. files include photographs, transparencies, or slides, even if that is not specifically indicated on the folder heading, but see also the Audiovisual Record Group, especially the Slides Series and the Photographs Series.

This Record Group also includes the files of some independent publicists (Christine Anderson and Carolyn Campbell), who were hired to handle P.R. for some specific events or projects. A large section of the Development Department Record Group, Administrative Series (3.01, Box 234, folder 1 - Box 237, folder 6) concerns Publicity and Marketing, some of which originated with the Development Department.

5. Board of Trustees

Scope and Contents note

These documents are the business records of the Craft and Folk Art Museum Board of Trustees. There were also meetings of the shareholders of CAFAM's predecessor, The Egg and The Eye Gallery, the Egg and The Eye Association group, and/or The Egg and The Eye Cultural Center, but--except for their bylaws--only a few documents concerning these entities were found. (See Boxes 407, folder 8; 424, folder 8 and 10; and 425, folder 1.) The first meeting of what became the CAFAM Board of Trustees took place on January 22, 1975. It was a meeting of the board of the Folk Art and Contemporary Craft Museum of Southern California. Present were Edith Wyle and Bernard Kester, two of the three directors; Gere Kavanaugh, the third director, was absent. The last meeting of The Egg and The Eye Cultural Center, as well as the first official meeting of the Craft and Folk Art Museum trustees, was held on June 4, 1975. Edith Wyle presided as Chair. Bernard Kester was named president of the corporation, which then merged with the Folk Art and Contemporary Craft Society Incorporating The Egg & The Eye. The name was then changed to the Craft and Folk Art Museum Incorporating The Egg and The Eye. Kester resigned as president at the second board meeting on August 28, 1975. Frank Wyle took over as Chair on November 25, 1975. Thereafter, Board Chairmen have been as follows: Mort Winston (1976 – 1987), Frank Wyle (1988 – 1995), Cleon T. “Bud” Knapp (1995 – 1996), Frank Wyle (1996 – 1999), Patrick Ela (1999 – 2002), Frank Wyle (2002 – 2008), Wally Marks III (2008 - present).

6. Education Department

Scope and Contents note

Education programs for children and adults were integral activities at both the The Egg and The Eye Gallery and the Craft and Folk Art Museum. A film program called “Encounter Cinema” was a popular series that was run for several years by Douglas Edwards. (See also CAFAM Administrative and Special Events Record Group – Administrative Files A–Z.) Lectures, workshops, and demonstrations were adjunct activities related to most exhibitions. The administrative files of the CAFAM Education Department (later called the department of Public Programs) consist of the files of the five educators (variously titled Education Curator, Curator of Education, Museum Educator, Public Programs Coordinator), whose tenure spanned 1975 - 1997: Karen Copeland, Janet Marcus, Phyllis Chang, Rochelle Branch, and Nancee LeNormand. Education programs throughout this 22-year period were abundant and diverse, especially during the eight-year tenure of Janet Marcus, reaching audiences of every age group and consisting of workshops, tours, lectures, visits to schools, visits of classes to CAFAM, docent training, storytelling, and film programs, as well as occasional puppet shows and musical performances. The educator produced many programs both in schools and on-site at the museum related to masks and mask making before and during each Festival of Masks. (See separate Festival of Masks Record Group -- Education Programs Series.) Additional education programming files related to specific exhibitions will be found in Series 10.02, the CAFAM Exhibitions Record Group. Arranged chronologically within each series.

6.02 Endowment Proposal 1991 - 1993

Scope and Contents note

Arranged in roughly chronological order. Until the end of 1991, a major funder of CAFAM's education programming was Mervyn's Department Stores, which supported the Moveable Museum program from 1984 - 1991. (See Series 6.03, Education Department Record Group -- School Activities and the Moveable Museum Series.) In 1991, a new education program initiative was proposed by Phyllis Chang, Curator of Education, and Sue Sirkus, Director of Development, for the consideration of Lloyd Cotsen, a CAFAM trustee, who had a special interest in education programming. See also CAFAM Administrative and Special Events Record Group – Administrative Files A-Z – People Associated with CAFAM: Cotsen, Lloyd; Cotsen files in Development and Board of Trustees Record Groups; and Education Department-related files in the Development Department Record Group.

6.03 School Activities and the Moveable Museum 1982 - 1991

Scope and Contents note

This series is divided into two parts; each is chronological. The first part (Boxes 442 - 443, folder 7) concerns education activities in the schools (1982 - 1989). The second part (Boxes 443, folder 8 - 445) concerns the "Moveable Museum" program. The Moveable Museum program was an elementary school outreach program for teachers and students, funded by Mervyn's Department Stores, that was active from 1984 through 1991. It was conceived and directed by Curator of Education Janet Marcus. Begun as a way to bring art and museum experiences to Los Angeles area schools that had been suffering budget cuts and had lost most funding for field-trip transportation, the Moveable Museum was a way of bringing CAFAM exhibitions to the classroom through the provision of teachers and artists who would talk about the exhibitions and lead hands-on workshops related to the exhibitions. In addition, a "Touch Box" was provided for each CAFAM exhibition that included touchable objects and media related to the current CAFAM exhibition. Bus transportation was also provided for the teachers and children to visit CAFAM. At first the program focused on current CAFAM exhibitions. In the last few years, however, the focus was on masks and mask making, which, because of the CAFAM-produced annual "Festival of Masks," had always been a special interest of the museum.

7. Design

Scope and Contents note

Excellence of both graphic design and exhibition installation design were essential aspects of the museum’s public persona and most of the time professional designers were hired for these tasks. The most comprehensive graphic design work, integrating all exterior and interior signage, all paper and print products and publications, as well as the graphic aspects of exhibition installation design, was done by graphic designer Max King between 1977 and 1984. She was the only full-time staff graphic designer ever hired. All other design work was done on an “independent contractor” basis. Exhibition installations were often designed by Program Director Edith Wyle in the early days as well as, on a pro bono basis, by professional designers who were friends of the museum, e.g., Bernard Kester. Later, professional designers were paid for installation designs. Occasionally, curators would act as designers. Carol Fulton, some of whose CAFAM files are here, was the only full-time exhibition designer hired by CAFAM. Some of her design work was done while in her previous position as CAFAM Registrar; she was hired as CAFAM Installation Designer in 1996.
 

7.01 Graphic Design 1965 - 1984

Scope and Contents note

The first folder in this graphic design series contains early versions of The Egg and The Eye logo, designed by Milt Zolotow. The remainder of the files in this series originated with CAFAM's graphic designer, Max King. They document a portion of the projects that King worked on during her eight-year (1977 - 1984) tenure. Most of King's files concern exhibition materials and are arranged alphabetically by exhibition title. The rest of the files are alphabetical by topic and include memos and other correspondence. Many of her design files (and almost all of the photostats and color separations) that had been stored at CAFAM were water-damaged sometime after she left the museum and had to be discarded. As Graphic Designer, she was responsible for designing all graphic expressions of the museum (i.e., their design, not their content). This included, most importantly, all museum publications, especially exhibition catalogs, posters, newsletters, invitations, announcements, membership brochures, and annual reports. It also included all graphic aspects of exhibition installations, including labels, signage, and photo blow-ups. (She did not design the installations, but she was responsible for designing and ordering the labels and signage.) She designed many fund-raising materials, including most of the ad/program books for the annual Festival Primavera, as well as (except for those designed by Milt Zolotow in the first few years) all of the printed materials associated with the annual Festival of Masks, including the posters. She also did some work for some of the CAFAM support groups. (See a file on the Folk Art Council's logo, Box 447, folder 8.) A few years into her career at CAFAM, she undertook to re-design in a consistent style all of the paper products of the museum, i.e., stationery, memos, invoices, business cards, and forms of all kinds. In a cost-cutting move, she was laid off in July 1984, and she went on to start her own design business. CAFAM never again had an on-staff graphic designer. For more examples of King's work, see also CAFAM Exhibitions Record Group and Posters Record Group.

The Egg and The Eye logo

Scope and Contents note

The logo for The Egg and The Eye Gallery was designed in 1965 by the well-known graphic designer, Milt Zolotow, who remained active with the organization after the gallery became a museum. Zolotow was on the faculty of California Institute of the Arts for many years. The logo appears in the later years of the gallery and the museum in slightly different versions as well as on the CAFAM restaurant menu in other versions. It is not clear whether or not Zolotow created any of these later versions or approved of them.

7.02 Exhibition Installation Design ca. 1970s, 1990s

Scope and Contents note

This file includes some early photocopied articles on museum lighting and exhibition design compiled by an early preparator. The remainder of the files, which originated with Carol Fulton, CAFAM Exhibition Designer, document only five exhibitions designed by Fulton. (Arranged in chronological order.) However, Fulton designed many, though not all, exhibitions for CAFAM from at least the early nineties to the end of 1997; the disposition of the files of the other exhibitions she worked on is not known. Each exhibition file was originally housed in a separate binder. Some design documents may be found in other files, e.g., because Fulton also held the position of Registrar during most of her tenure, some Registrar files include some design materials. See also CAFAM Exhibitions Record Group and exhibition installation slides in the Audiovisual Materials Record Group.

8. Registrar's Record Group

Scope and Contents note

The job of registrar is considered essential for any museum that will be either borrowing or lending objects for exhibitions or acquiring objects for a permanent collection. CAFAM’s first Registrar (1975 – 1978) was Karen Copeland; her assistant was Marcia Page. When Copeland was appointed Museum Educator, Marcia Page took the position of Registrar. Page held that position until 1989, when she was promoted to Director, Exhibition Development. At that point, Carol Fulton, who had been Page’s Assistant Registrar, was appointed Registrar. Fulton was made Installation Designer in 1996, but continued for a while as Registrar until later that year, when Tamara Pacifici, who had been Fulton’s assistant, was appointed Registrar. Although the development of a permanent collection by CAFAM was always somewhat controversial due to the lack of adequate storage space or staff for conservation, nevertheless a collection grew. Extensive manual records of acquisitions date from 1975 and include donations of individual items as well as large collections. Starting in the late eighties, collection data was entered into a computerized collections management database using MARCON software . Printouts of those records are included here. Here also are records of the sale of most of the permanent collection at Butterfield & Butterfield Auction House in April 1998 after the board of trustees decided to close the museum. Another series includes files of objects included in CAFAM exhibitions; exhibitions that traveled to CAFAM; exhibitions that traveled from CAFAM; and records of the borrowing and lending of objects.
 

8.01 Acquisitions 1975 - 1998

Scope and Contents note

These are the Registrar's correspondence files and the registration (accession) records of objects in CAFAM's permanent collection, donated or purchased between 1975 - 1995 and related documentation. Most of the files are in chronological order. Box 449, folders 1 - 20 contains correspondence and miscellaneous documents divided chronologically by year (1978 - 1997). Boxes 450 - 451, folder 4 contain information on specific objects acquired 1975 - 1988. Box 451, folder 5 - 14 concern specific collections given to the museum 1988 - 1997. Boxes 452 - 454, folder 5 are accession records, 1975 - 1995. In addition to the records arranged by accession number, there are separate files of some of the larger donations: Robert Checchi (hats); Carolyn and Ted Warmbold (Mexican folk art); and Jane Herwegh (international folk art). Registrars and their tenure are as follows: Karen Copeland (1975-78); Marcia Page (1979-89); Carol Fulton (1990- 96); and Tamara Pacifici (1996-97). CAFAM accession numbers were built with the year first, then the number of the acquisition, then the number of the object within the collection, then the number of the object part if the object has more than one part, e.g., 1981.3.14.4 is the 4th part of the fourteenth object in the third collection to be acquired in 1981.

Scope and Contents note

On May 16, 1977, first lady Mrs. Roslyn Carter gave the traditional annual luncheon for the senators' wives, but instead of using traditional White House china, she invited American craftsmen to create table settings for the event. Elena Canavier, NEA Crafts Coordinator, was asked to act in an advisory capacity and she called on regional experts, among them Ann Robbins, CAFAM Shop Manager, to recommend and contact craftspeople. After the luncheon, CAFAM organized an exhibition of the objects made for the event. After the exhibition, CAFAM purchased 35 of the objects.

Loans from CAFAM -- West Coast: Art for the Vice-President's House 1980 - 1981

Scope and Contents note

Joan Mondale organized an art exhibition to be mounted in the Vice President's residence. Seven objects from the CAFAM permanent collection were included in a show of 60 pieces. The CAFAM artists represented were Laura Andreson, Cornelia Breitenbach, Stephanie De Lange, Jonathan Kraut, Sam Maloof, Richard Marquis, and Bradley Miller. The exhibition was not a show of contemporary crafts; it included paintings, sculpture, and photography from many important artists (e.g., Billie Al Bengston, Harry Callahan, Dan Flavin, Helen Lundeberg, Betye Saar, Richard Diebenkorn, Carmen Lomas Garza, Clyfford Still, and Robert Irwin). Two different date ranges are mentioned: March 1, 1980 - April 15, 1981 and February 20 - May 5, 1981; not certain which is correct--or were there two separate exhibitions?

8.02 Exhibitions 1975 - 1995

Scope and Contents note

These are the Registrar's files concerning CAFAM exhibitions, arranged in alphabetical order by exhibition title. Many registration exhibition files are missing. (For a more complete file of CAFAM exhibitions, see CAFAM Exhibitions Record Group, Series 10.02, Box 78, folder 8 - Box 141, folder 7.) The Registrar's files include exhibitions originating at CAFAM and utilizing permanent collection objects; exhibitions organized by CAFAM from borrowed objects or from a combination of CAFAM objects and borrowed objects; travelling exhibitions organized at CAFAM and travelling elsewhere; and travelling exhibitions organized elsewhere and mounted at CAFAM (sometimes including objects added by CAFAM). They include mostly documents relating to the borrowing and lending of objects; the packing, shipping and receipt of objects; condition reports; and insurance matters. When exhibition objects were for sale, this was normally handled by the shop; however, some sales documents will be found in this series. Other types of exhibition documents (e.g., catalog copy or installation designs) will sometimes be found here as well. In general, however, files concerning the planning, design, and installation of exhibitions will be found in the CAFAM Exhibitions Record Group and the Exhibitions series; exhibition publicity files will be found in the Public Relations Record Group; and files related to the funding of exhibitions will be found in the Development Record Group. See also the exhibition-related slide files in the Audiovisual Materials Record Group. A few folders contain documentation of objects or events that were not in and of themselves formal CAFAM exhibitions, e.g., Japan Today and Stained Glass Demonstration.

9. Curatorial Record Group

Scope and Contents note

Only a few CAFAM staff were given the title of Curator. Many exhibitions mounted at CAFAM were curated and organized elsewhere, or were curated by guest curators. A few exhibitions were curated by CAFAM's founder, Edith Wyle. Of staff curators, the files of only three people have been preserved here: Sharon Emanuelli, Laurie Beth Kalb, and Martha Drexler Lynn. Others who held that title (but whose files were unavailable) were Dorothy Garwood, Willow Young, Deirdre Evans-Pritchard, and Gloria Gonick.
 

9.01 Sharon K. (Shan) Emanuelli 1977 - 1984; 1994 - 1995

Scope and Contents note

These files, arranged alphabetically by topic and chronologically within each topic, originated principally with curator Sharon K. (Shan) Emanuelli, but they are incomplete and they also include some other files that may have originated with Brenda Hurst and/or Trisha Tallon- Blanchard, who both were Administrative Assistants to Edith Wyle, Program Director. Emanuelli worked on exhibitions as Assistant to the Program Director, Edith Wyle, from 1978 - 1981; in 1982 her title was changed to Senior Curator. She married Michael Kaiser and moved away in 1984, returning to L.A. in 1988. In 1994 – 95, she worked at CAFAM as a consultant/guest curator on the Homecoming re-opening exhibition, “Museum for a New Century.” See also the CAFAM Exhibitions Record Group and some of the Registrar's Record Group for this period of time.

Gantt charts -- Black Folk Art in America

Scope and Contents note

Gantt Charts illustrate project schedules. The charts are named after Henry Gantt (1861 - 1919), who designed his chart around 1910 - 1915. CAFAM administration became interested in utilizing these charts in 1982 and set up a meeting with a consultant named Jim Huser, who was brought in to explain their use at a meeting on July 21, 1982. Seven staff members (Edith Wyle, Patrick Ela, Lorraine Trippett, Shan Emanuelli, Willow Young, and Brenda Hurst) attended the meeting. There is evidence here that Gantt charts were used in the planning of the 1982 and 1984 Festivals of Masks, and the "Black Folk Art in America" exhibition. There was an attempt to use them in the planning of some other exhibitions in 1983 and 1985, but it is not clear if they were actually used.

9.02 Laurie Beth Kalb 1987 - 1990

Scope and Contents note

These files originated with Laurie Beth Kalb, who was hired as Curator October 1, 1987. She worked at CAFAM through the end of January 1990. Her files are in two parts: administrative files and exhibition files. The administrative files are alphabetical by topic and chronological within each topic. They include files on acquisitions considered during her tenure. The exhibition files, which are in alphabetical order by exhibition title, concern exhibitions that she curated or organized for CAFAM. During her tenure, she curated nine exhibitions and organized several others. (The files for the last exhibition she worked on, "Hands On! Objects Crafted in our Time," are missing; however, files for "Hands On!" will be found in Exhibitions Series 10.2.) Files on exhibitions that were declined or that were considered, but not produced, during Kalb's tenure will be found in her administrative files.

9.03 Martha Drexler Lynn 1997

Scope and Contents note

These files, in alphabetical order by topic, document the preliminary research that was being done for an exhibition on the subject of puppets by Martha Drexler Lynn, Director of Programs. She was working on it at the time that she resigned in November 1997. As the museum closed in February 1998, this exhibition was unrealized. Although Lynn was on staff when "The Spirit of India" was mounted, she was not involved in the organization of that exhibition. She did organize "Tantalizing Teapots," which opened on September 19, 1997, and which was based on a collection of mostly contemporary and artist-designed teapots belonging to Gloria and Sonny Kamm. Because the files concerning the development of “Tantalizing Teapots: The Felicitous Union of Form and Content--Selections from the Collection of Gloria and Sonny Kamm” were not found until after the CAFAM Exhibitions Record Group had been completely processed, they are housed in the Administrative and Special Events Record Group -- Miscellaneous Series. (See Boxes 415, folders 1 - 3; and in the Education Record Group, Box 440, folder 17 and 441, folder 3.)
Box 476, Folder 1

Exhibition research -- miscellaneous 1997

Box 476, Folder 2

Exhibition research -- Sicilian puppets

Scope and Contents note

These materials were housed in a binder, which was removed. A letter accompanying the binder is addressed to Edith Wyle. It is from Teresa Sorce, (who at the time of the letter--April 17, 1997--was living in Goleta, California) and a label on the title page says: " A Folio on Sicilian Puppets for Edith Wyle from Teresa Sorce; Color Copies of Paintings and Three Magazine Articles on the Puppets." The paintings are by Sorce and are of scenes from the marionette plays. All three magazine articles included are about the Manteo Scicilian Marionette Theatre, which has performed traditional Sicilian marionette plays (most famously Orlando Furioso) for five generations in New York City. The Marionette Theater has been featured by the Smithsonian Institution at the 1976 Bicentennial Festival of American Folklife and by the World Puppetry Festival held in Washington, D.C. in 1980. The first Manteo puppets, now over a century old, are in the Smithsonian collection and have been exhibited throughout the U.S. In June 1983, Michael Manteo received a National Heritage Fellowship. It is not clear from the packet or the letter what relationship, if any, Teresa Sorce has to the Manteos. The content of the letter indicates that Sorce is a friend of Wyle's.

10. CAFAM Exhibitions

Scope and Contents note

These CAFAM exhibition files include documents relating to 142 exhibitions mounted and/or organized by the staff of the Craft and Folk and Art Museum between August 1975 (the time of its transition from being The Egg and The Eye Gallery) and February 1998 (the time of its temporary closing); this is a period of approximately 22.5 years. (For The Egg and The Eye Gallery exhibitions, see separate Egg and The Eye Record Group, Series 1.01, Box 2, folder 14 - Box 4, folder 42.) The CAFAM folders here are arranged in alphabetical order by exhibition title. The general file includes a chronological list of exhibitions arranged by opening date. The CAFAM Exhibitions Record Group has been compiled from several exhibition files originally collected by the librarian, the administrative staff, and the museum educator. After the CAFAM Exhibitions Record Group was fully processed, a few exhibition files were discovered elsewhere. For the records of “Tantalizing Teapots,” (the last show mounted before the museum’s temporary closure), as well as a few others, see Series 2.14, CAFAM Administrative and Special Events Record Group – Miscellaneous Files Series. Exhibitions were mounted principally in two galleries that existed at CAFAM’s “flagship” location at 5814 Wilshire Blvd: on the west side of the first floor (Gallery 1) and on the third floor (Gallery 2). Over the years, installations were also mounted in numerous other locations, some that were operated at the same time as 5814 Wilshire, and some that were utilized during the time when 5814 was under renovation. These other exhibition locations included: an “Annex” at 712 S. Curson on the second floor of a building on the southeast corner of Wilshire and Curson; a space called “Gallery 3” in Santa Monica Place, the Santa Monica shopping mall designed by Frank Gehry; a gallery on the 4th floor of the May Company department store at the corner of Wilshire and Fairfax; and galleries in CAFAM East (next door to 5814) at 5800 Wilshire Blvd. A variety of other ad hoc spaces were also utilized for individual exhibitions from time to time, including the Carlsberg Corporation, Patina Restaurant, the Pacific Design Center Gallery, the TransAmerica Gallery, the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center, Security Pacific Plaza, Wyle Laboratories, the Braille Institute, Tosco Corporation, and the Plaza de la Raza. A number of exhibitions organized by CAFAM traveled throughout the U.S. and abroad. “Puzzles Old and New” went to Tokyo, Osaka, Vancouver, Toronto, Indianapolis, and Yonkers, NY. “Artesanos Mexicanos” was the opening show at the Children’s Museum in Washington, D.C. “Dress Codes: Urban Folk Fashion” was mounted at the Smithsonian Institution Experimental Gallery in Washington, D.C. Many types of documents are included in these files, though not all exhibition files are represented by all types of documents. Included are some or all of the following: correspondence reflecting exhibition development, installation, exhibition period, and (in some cases) post-exhibition activity; media releases, clippings of reviews, and notices from newspapers and magazines; publicity photos; installation slides (but see also Audiovisual Materials Record Group -- Slides Series and Photographs Series) ; publications, including catalogs, checklists, brochures, posters, and invitations to opening receptions and related events; education research materials and event files related to educator and docent-generated activities; object lists and label copy; lender lists, loan forms, and insurance documents; visitor comment books; budget documents; and files regarding an exhibition’s travel, if any. All exhibition posters are in a separate large flat poster box (see Box 194, Posters Record Group). Exhibition materials will also be found in many other record groups: see especially Curatorial, Registrar, Education, Design, Development, Public Relations, and Audiovisual Materials Record Groups.

Scope and Contents note

Includes both alphabetical and chronological lists of CAFAM exhibitions. Besides some general file folders, Box 77 and part of Box 78 include three binders of exhibition documents arranged in chronological order; apparently kept by the CAFAM Administrative Secretary, starting with “Patterns: Fabric Stencil Art of Japan” (opened 6/17/77) and ending with “Folk Treasures of Mexico: Highlights from the Nelson A. Rockefeller Collection” (opened 9/7/91). Many exhibitions are represented only by a press release, others include lists of artists or correspondence. Also included is a record book showing gallery attendance figures and a gallery volunteers’ log from 2/16/88 – 6/30/92 (several years missing). See also files on individual exhibitions in Series 10.02 (Box 78, folder 8 - Box 141, folder 7); program files related to exhibitions in the Education Department Record Group; exhibition files in the Registrar's Record Group; and images of exhibition installations in the Audiovisual Materials Record Group -- Exhibition Slides Series and Photographs Series.

Ledger showing, on a daily basis, number of admissions to gallery broken into categories (adults, seniors/students, children, and members), together with cash taken in from admission fees; ledger also shows number of “patrons for exhibit, shop, and restaurant.” The first exhibition listed is “New Spirit in British Craft and Design” (show opened 2/9/88, but ledger begins on 2/16); last exhibition listed with this level of detail is “The Vessel: Studies in Form and Media,” which was the last show to be mounted at 5814 Wilshire before CAFAM moved to the May Co. The next entry is for “Hands On! Objects Crafted in Our Time,” which was the first exhibition in the May Co. gallery; the entries from this show forward are much less detailed: they list the names of the gallery volunteers, the gallery hours, and the total “visitor head count.” The last consecutive date for which visitor numbers are listed is 6/28/90. Later pages list gallery volunteers and their hours only. Final dates (6/30 – 7/7/92) list number of visitors only (for just the first week of “America’s Living Folk Traditions.” Blue record book.
