Series 5: Project Files , 1966-circa 2007
5.6 Linear feet
Boxes 6-11, FC 18-21

This series primarily includes files on Audrey Flack's public works and on exhibitions. Files documenting Flack's commissioned works chart the various stages of the project. Included are letters between Flack and public officials, foundries, architects, and colleagues as well as artist's statements, informational sheets, sketches and architectural renderings, contracts, invoices, and agreements, schedules of completion, insurance forms and certificates, legal filings, printed material, and photographs. Substantive documentation is found on major commissions, including Civitas, Rock Hill, South Carolina, Queen Catherine, Queens, New York, and Veritas, Tampa, Florida.
Exhibition-related files contain curricula vitae, correspondence, business-related materials, lists of artwork, exhibition schedules, photographs, and slides. Among the printed materials are news clippings including interviews with Flack, coverage of openings, and reviews of her work. Included are files on a major travelling exhibition "Breaking the Rules: Audrey Flack, A Retrospective, 1950-1990" organized by the J.B. Speed Art Museum that include annotated drafts of an essay by Lowery Sims written for the catalog. Two film reels document an exhibition at the Louis K. Meisel Gallery. Additional sound and video recordings and motion picture film document several of Flack's commissions and exhibitions, including extensive recordings related to her Queen Catherine sculpture. A small portion of audiovisual material is unidentified. Also included are two videos in digital format.
Included are files pertaining to Flack's teaching appointments, speaking engagements, and her activities in arts organizations. Interspersed among the files are typescripts on Flack's artwork and printed material, including news and magazine clippings.
Files are arranged in alphabetical order; items within folder are arranged in rough chronological order. Researchers should also note that correspondence relating to exhibitions and commissioned pieces can be found in Series 2: Correspondence.
