3.1: Administrative Files , circa 1974-1988

Found here are records relating to the general operations and administration of LAICA. The bulk of the files relate to grant fund applications and general fundraising. Grant proposals are to the National Endowment for the Arts, Institute of Museum Services, and the Southern California Center for the Arts, and include funded projects and denied proposals. The denied grants provide information about proposed exhibits and programs that are not documented elsewhere.
Also found in this subseries are files concerning membership and donors, staff, committees and an advisory council, space and floor plans, and works of art sold by LAICA which were possibly donated by artists for fundraising purposes. The material is arranged in a rough alphabetical order according to either topic, activity, or type of material.
