6.1: Gallery and Institution Files , 1946-1980

This series includes documentation of White's 1958 exhibition at ACA Gallery, including a sign-in sheet, snapshots taken at the opening, and letters of praise from many attendees including Charles Keller and Walter Rosenblum. Documentation of White's 1961 exhibition at ACA Gallery includes snapshots of the opening picturing Harry Belafonte, William Gropper, Hughie Lee Smith, and others.
Files related to Akademie der Künste der Deutschen Demokratischen Republik document two visits White made to Germany and plans for a 1979 exhibition which never took place due to his illness and subsequent death. The files include letters from Academy of the Arts of the German Democratic Republic President, Konrad Wolf; letters from Irene Mode, who acted as White's translator on his 1974 and 1978 trips to Germany; a catalog of the Exhibition of American Artists (1974); and a copy of the address delivered by Lea Grundig, Honorary President of the Sculptor's and Painters' Association of the German Democratic Republic at the opening ceremony of the exhibition.
Records related to Barnett-Aden Gallery include a handwritten draft of an essay or talk about the gallery by White. Records documenting White's association with Heritage Gallery can be found in Series 2: Correspondence, and Series 7: Printed Material.
The bulk of this subseries has been digitized. Material not digitized includes some publications for which only covers and/or relevant pages have been digitized.
