Abstract:

The exhibition files document the work of the Department of Education in the planning and implementation of exhibitions from 1970 to 2003. The files include correspondence, proposals, contracts, research, publicity, grants, and creative works illustrating the educational components of museum exhibitions, which include special lectures, symposia, workshops, musical and performing arts events, printed and recorded guides, audio-visual shows, and complementary educational exhibitions. These records also reflect the department's responsibility for exhibition brochures and wall labels through various drafts of copy, galleys, and label books. The finished brochures, printed flyers, and announcement inserts have been placed in Series 13, Ephemera, although duplicates are occasionally included in these files. Ongoing programs held in conjunction with exhibitions, however-such as the Shartle Symposia, Evenings for Educators, or Family Days- are contained within the appropriate program series rather than the Exhibition Files.

The amount of documentation varies with each exhibition, ranging from single-sheet listings of educational components for February 1981-April 1982 to multiple files regarding one exhibition. Information on exhibitions held during the 1970s is sparse. Typically, an exhibition file unit begins with General Program Information, including program listings, proposals, budgets, announcements, and bibliographies. Correspondence further reflects the planning and implementation of the programs. Substantial amounts of records on a specific component are given their own file.

Exhibitions with extensive documentation include Money Matters: A Critical Look at Bank Architecture (2/4/1990-4/15/1990); The Pen and The Sword: Winslow Homer, Thomas Nast and the American Civil War (8/4/1990-2/4/1991); Rediscovering Pompeii (11/11/1990-1/27/1991); The Sculpture of Indonesia (12/9/1990-3/17/1991); Martin Luther King (two exhibits) (12/9/1990-3/17/1991 and 2/12/1991-7/7/1991); and Leonardo da Vinci: The Anatomical Drawings (6/28/1992-9/6/1992).
