6.4: Other Writings by Falkenstein, circa 1929-1993

Eclectic writings by Falkenstein are mostly unpublished, beginning with her writings as an undergraduate at UC, Berkeley and ending with her observations about her artwork in the 1990s. Travel notes are not diary entries but more formal writings about tours Falkenstein organized in France and Italy. Of particular interest are the poetry and music files which document Falkenstein's wide range of artistic endeavors. This subseries also contains notes and the script for Falkestein's film entitled
Touching the Quick
and drafts of her unpublished book on murals. The observations on her artwork contain notes and more formal writings on specific pieces of sculpture.
The files are arranged by type of material. File contents are arranged chronologically.
