The Brand Library & Art Center has presented hundreds of exhibitions since 1963, including the Brand Annual Juried exhibitions co-sponsored by the Associates of Brand Library & Art Center. The archival collection includes promotional material, exhibition catalogs, correspondence, newspaper clippings, contracts and condition reports, photographs and slides of artists’ work and gallery installations, artists’ biographical information, and other supplemental materials related to the gallery’s administration and exhibitions.
The contents of the Brand Library Art Galleries Archival Collection has been accumulated and organized by gallery and library staff since 1963. Chronologically ordered file folders became the de facto arrangement. File folders are housed in metal filing cabinets. In 2013, MLIS candidate Diane Lorraine Garcia processed the archive through 1990. She inventoried and documented the archive contents and undertook preservation efforts, including the removal of metal paperclips and staples, separating newspaper clippings, and properly housing slides, negatives and photographs. She also authored this finding aid for inclusion in the Online Archive of California.
