Artist Files

Collection Creator:
White, Charles, 1918-1979  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
circa 1933-1982
Scope and Contents:
This series consists primarily of announcements and exhibition catalogs documenting White's interest in other Black artists of his generation and younger, many of whom were friends and colleagues of his such as Bing Davis and Betye Saar, and some of whom were his students at Otis Art Institute.

Of particular note are the catalog from Romare Bearden's first New York exhibition at Samuel M. Kootz Gallery; a WPA student art exhibition at the South Side Community Art Center in Chicago; and a catalog for a 1933 Harmon Foundation Exhibition of Work by Negro Artists.
Arrangement:
Arrangement follows what is believed to be the original arrangement and folder titles which separated printed material about Black artists from material about other artists. Artist files are arranged alphabetically by artist name.
