Exhibition files include files for individual exhibitions, exhibitions by women artists, and chronological files. Files may contain correspondence, inventories, consignment records, layout plans, printed material, and photographic material. Individual exhibition files pertain to a single exhibition, while chronological files reflect group exhibitions and those at venues where she did not regularly exhibit. The chronological files also contain the earliest exhibition records, dating from the 1940s. One file relates specifically to exhibitions involving women artists in the 1970s. Sound recordings contain conversations with curators and are on two sound cassettes. A published video recording corresponding to the Transformations exhibit is on two videocassettes (VHS) and one videodisc (DVD). Interviews related to exhibitions at the Brauer Museum, Valerie Carberry Gallery, and the DePaul Art Museum and can be found in Series 3: Interviews.
