3.3: Publicity Notebooks , 1901-1969, undated

Publicity notebooks consist of clippings, press releases, exhibition announcements, invitations, and catalogs, and occasionally include photographs and notes. Separate series of notebooks were compiled and maintained for group shows at the Downtown Gallery and group shows in other locations. Group shows in other locations included shows organized by the Downtown Gallery and featuring Downtown Gallery loans, purchases, or affiliated artists. Separate notebooks were also maintained for American folk art exhibitions at the Downtown Gallery and folk art shows elsewhere.
This subseries also contains miscellaneous publicity records. Miscellaneous publicity relating to American folk art in the 1950s includes separate sections of records for five collections that relied heavily on Halpert's expertise and contained significant artwork acquired through the Downtown Gallery.
Miscellaneous publicity relating to artists A to Z includes the following artists: Archipenko, Aronson, Ault, Bacon, Baskin, Beerman, Berkowitz, Bloom, Breinin, Brice, Broderson, Brook, Browne, Burlin, Cloar, Coleman, Corson, Crawford, Dahill, Dole, Lachaise, Lebrun, Ottesen, and Stella. Photographs found here picture an opening exhibition of Our Gallery, Inc., 1926; William Zorach with doors he designed for the entrance to the Daylight Gallery, 1930; a plaque by Reuben Nakian over the Zorach doors of the Daylight Gallery, 1930; and Duncan Candler with his door frame in bas relief, circa 1930.
Miscellaneous publicity records for Downtown Gallery relate to solo and group exhibitions and the 1951 opening of the ground-floor room.
The series is organized as follows: notebooks for group shows at the Downtown Gallery; notebooks for group shows at other locations; notebooks for American folk art exhibtions at the Downtown Gallery; notebooks for American folk art exhibitions at other locations; and miscellaneous publicity for American folk art, artists A to Z, Downtown Gallery, and foreign artwork.
