This series contains photographs of Butterfield's friends, associates, and family, her travels to China and Greece, and her wedding to Henry Hopkins. Photographs of people include artists Philip Guston, Ed Kienholz, Henry Hopkins with Clyfford Still, Robert Irwin, Robert Rauschenberg, and a group photograph for the Los Angeles Magazine feature, "LA Art in the 1960s," the published version of which is found in series 5, Printed Materials. The bulk of this series consists of photographs of works of art, arranged by artist, with a few photographs of exhibitions at the end of the series.
