Series 3: Notebooks , circa 1968-2017
7.2 Linear feet
Box 1-8

Over 100 notebooks document nearly five decades of Mullican's work process, dating from circa 1968-2017. Central to Mullican's practice from the time he was a student up until the present, the notebooks richly illustrate both his material and conceptual exploration. The term 'notebook' is used here to encompass the breadth of content collected in the books, including drawings and sketches, conceptual frameworks, notes, lists, calendars, travel logistics, as well as diary entries. In most cases, Mullican created titles for the notebooks in retrospect. Early subjects tackled as a high school student (including comics, superheroes, and cars) evolve during his time at CalArts and beyond to form the basis of his text-based, conceptual, performance works. The 1970s notebooks demonstrate the development of Mullican's cosmology, the stick figure 'Glen,' and his alter ego 'That Person.' Notebooks from the 1980s-2000s contain plans for public artworks, commissions, exhibition installations, and books. Mullican experimented with a variety of media and techniques throughout the notebooks including pencil, pen, marker, crayon, acetone transfer, and collage. Mullican has identified a few of the notebooks as single works of art, including artist books and altered books. Also arranged here are a diary from 1975 and an undated collection of watercolor studies.

Series 5: Project and Commission Files , 1980s-2000s
10.3 Linear feet
Box 14-19, OV and RD 25-43

Project and commission files date from the 1980s-2000s and contain documentation of international public and corporate commissions, academic engagements, performances, publishing projects, print editions, illustrations, grants, residencies, and other project based artwork. Public and corporate commissions include artworks and installations for banks, airports, office complexes, university buildings, public transit stations, and other spaces. Documentation is particularly extensive for the commissions at Flushing Meadows, Corona Park; the Los Angeles Convention Center; and the Lyon Parc Auto. Types of materials found in the files include correspondence, sketches, mock-ups, notes, research, source material, proposals, contracts, invoices, maps, installation slides and photographs, travel and installation logistics, schedules, insurance documents, and printed material including corporate reports and brochures. A large sequence of assorted project and commission files toward the end of the series are unorganized and unsorted. Included here are many working drawings provided to fabricators working in stone and glass. Digital media items with unidentified contents occupy the last folder in the series.
