Non-exhibition photographs 1950s-1980s

Language of Material: English
Physical Description: 2.92 Linear feet 7 Hollinger boxes

Scope and Contents note

This series consists of 7 Hollinger boxes (2.92 linear feet) of materials including photographs (predominantly 8 x 10 black and white prints), negatives, slides, press releases, requests for photographs forms, and other materials dated between 1950 and 1989, or undated, with the bulk of the material dated between 1960 and 1975. The bulk of the collection consists of event photography taken on the LACMA campus at 5905 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles and at the Los Angeles County Museum of Science, History, and Art at Exposition Park. Most but not all of the photographs were created by the LACMA Photo Services Department and likely brought together by that department for use by the Office of Public Information. Photography would have been created by the Photo Services Department to document Museum buildings, gallery installation, facility maintenance, to produce official portraits of staff and trustees and other purposes as requested by various Museum departments. The series also includes various Museum eventsevents, such as celebrations and the move of the art collections from The Museum of Science, History and Art at Exposition Park to the Wilshire Blvd. campus. Some of the photographs were not taken by LACMA staff but by independant photographers hired to provide photography for a specific event.
