More Information

Barbara Aikens and Megan McShea
Immediate Source of Acquisition
The Artists Talk on Art (ATOA) records, including digital files of the video and sound recordings, were donated to the Archives in 2016 by Douglas Sheer, Chairman of ATOA.
Processing Information
The video and sound recordings and flyer panels were digitized by the Artists Talk on Art organization prior to donation according to the Archives of American Art's standards and guidance provided by staff archivists Megan McShea and Robin Holladay Peak. Electronic copies of transcripts for twelve panels were donated in 2017-2018. Video and sound recordings, and their digital surrogates, and electronic records were processed to a preliminary level and an inventory for the finding aid was prepared by Megan McShea in 2017-2018. Additional processing of the audio and video recordings is planned, to eventually provide more granular access to the hundreds of events and participants recorded in the collection. The paper portion of the collection was processed and described by Barbara Aikens in 2017.
