American Federation of Arts records, 1895-1993 (bulk 1909-1969).

The records of the American Federation of Arts (AFA) thoroughly document the Federation's founding and history of sponsoring exhibitions and programs supporting the study and promotion of American art, both nationally and abroad. Included are correspondence, subject files, exhibition files, reports, financial statements, printed material, and photographs. The bulk of the records (62 ft.) are the Exhibition Files (Series V), primarily those in the Annual Exhibitions subseries (approx. 47 ft.). These files, arranged chronologically, contain contracts and legal agreements, correspondence, memoranda, itinerary information, condition reports, publicity materials, catalogs, announcements, and price lists for nearly 500 varied exhibitions, including contemporary American and foreign art and architecture, experimental art, the exchange of cultural ideas, and the promotion of artists of various cultural and ethnic backgrounds through exhibitions such as a Jacob Lawrence retrospective (1960), "Contemporary Jewish Ceremonial Art" (1961), the "Heart of India" (1962), "1,000 Years of American Indian Art" (1963), and "Ten Negro Artists from the United States" (1966), whose file contains photographs of 16 African-American artists and their paintings exhibited at the First World Festival of Negro Arts in Dakar, Senegal, 1966, taken by Geoffrey Clements. Another subseries, Exhibitions, General, reflect the work of the AFA's Board of Trustees Exhibition Committee and documents its early involvement with traveling exhibitions through the files of Juliana R. Force, Eloise Spaeth, and Mrs. John Pope. Other Exhibition Files subseries document specific programs, rejected, cancelled, or suggested exhibitions, and exhibitions held in partnerships with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, and other organizations. Included in the Finding Aid for the collection may be found a listing of over 6,000 artists' and others exhibiting with the AFA. Among those with a sizeable number of entries are: Ansel Adams, Anni and Josef Albers, Calvin Albert, Harold Altman, Garo Antreasian, Jean Arp, Milton Avery, Will Barnet, Leonard Baskin, William Baziotes, George W.
