Series consists of files relating to McCausland's work organizing various exhibitions, including "The World of Tomorrow" exhibition at The Berkshire Museum in the summer of 1939, the first comprehensive group exhibition of silk screen color prints at the Springfield Museum of Fine Arts in March 1940, another (perhaps related) group exhibition of silk screen color prints at the New York State Museum in the summer of 1940, and an exhibition of contemporary photography at the A.C.A. Gallery in August 1944. Files include correspondence, lists of works, text for wall labels and catalogs, and photographs. Files document McCausland's activities of selecting works, planning, and making arrangements for the exhibitions, and her interactions with others involved, such as Laura Bragg at The Berkshire Museum, Charles Adams at the New York State Museum, Audrey MacMahon at the Works Progress Administration, Edward Landon, and various artists.
Files are arranged in alphabetical order. Items within files are arranged in rough chronological order, according to the existing organization. Related material can be found amongst research and writing files, and general correspondence.
