10.2: Chicago and New York Art History, 1937-2013
Material here primarily documents the careers of artists and the history of art organizations in Chicago, with less material relating to New York. Many artists were personal friends of Lanyon and she also played a role in some of the organizations. The Hairy Who, the Chicago Imagists, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Hyde Park Art Center, Participating Artists of Chicago (PAC), and other art groups or organizations are well documented. A small amount of photographic material is found throughout the subseries. Roland Ginzel designed a poster for PAC featuring photographs of members, and as a result, the originals of the photo booth pictures are found here. Material is arranged by type or subject. One video recording of Tom Palazzolo's Down Clark Street is on one video cassette (VHS) and one videodisc (DVD). Electronic files contain Chicago ephemera.
