This series contains materials related to three exhibitions. A press release and a label is found for the landmark exhibition American Folk Art: The Art of the Common Man in America, organized by Holger Cahill for the Museum of Modern Art in 1932-1933. Also found here are two copies of the catalog and index cards of artwork for the First Municipal Art Exhibition (1934) organized by Miller and Cahill and shown at the Rockefeller Center in New York; one catalog is annotated with addresses of the artists. Additional scattered documents concern the galleries or Salons of America of the exhibition.
One folder relates to the exhibition Dorothy C. Miller: With An Eye to American Art, held at the Smith College Museum of Art in 1985 that was inspired by Miller's famous series of "American" shows at MOMA.
