Summary:
This accession consists of materials that document the exhibition activities of the Division of Graphic Arts within the Curatorial Office at the National Museum of American Art. Records created prior to 1989 were created in the Department of Graphic Arts. The Department of Graphic Arts became a division of the newly formed Curatorial Department in 1989. The Department was renamed the Curatorial Office circa 1992. The Curatorial Office organizes and oversees the museum's exhibitions and acquisitions programs, as well as researching and displaying the national collection. Materials include correspondence, memoranda, proposals, press kits, black and white photographs, slides of artists' work, checklists, label/wall text, itineraries, installation materials and photographs, floor plans, invitations, guest lists, catalog text, budget information, visitor impressions of exhibitions, notes and related records.
