3.1: The Art Collection of Pacific Enterprises Artist Files and Interviews , circa 1990
1 Linear foot

Records related to a published catalog of the corporate art collection of Pacific Enterprises include galleys of artist biographies as they appeared in the book, a typescript glossary of terms related to artworks in the collection, and nine sound cassettes (microcassettes) containing artist interviews conducted by Michael Karp. Microcassettes have poor sound quality, and the artists being interviewed are not named or consistently identified in cassette labels. Those who have been identified are listed in the folder listing, below, in the order in which their interviews occur on the cassette. Interviews tend to be around 20 minutes in duration.
Artist files generally contain typescript artist biographies, resumes obtained from galleries or from the artist, photocopies of clippings and articles related to the artist, and sometimes contain exhibition printed material and photographs of artwork. Most of the biographies were written by Micahel Karp, but a few were written by Butterfield, including biographies for Arleo, Breschi, Ruth Duckworth, Kenneth Ferguson, David Gilhooly, Tom Marioni, Richard Shaw, Inez Storer, and Peter Voulkos. Note that files do not exist for every artist that was included in the Pacific Enterprises Catalog.
Additional artist files maintained by Jan Butterfield can be found in the writings series under Publicity Writings when they contain writings produced by Butterfield for the artist, in the Personal Business Records series under Correspondence when they contain correspondence between Butterfield and the artist. Additional artist files containing only reproductions of artwork are found in the Photographs series.
