Series 4: Professional Files , 1979-2002
0.65 Linear feet
Boxes 2-3, 6

This series documents Ojeda's other professional activities, such as awards he received, grants he sought, requests and permissions for use of his artwork, competitions he entered, printing and framing services he used, conferences and other events he attended or was otherwise involved in, and records relating to political interests and causes, such as the Grupo de Convergencia Democratica en Uruguay. The series provides additional context for his career as an artist and also reveals more about his political interests and his involvement with the Latino American community.
Four legal files document attempts to avoid litigation after the publishing house Editoria Siglo XXI reproduced engravings by Ojeda without his permission.
The series includes records of Ojeda's grants from the D.C. Commission of the Arts and Humanities that funded his illustrations for poems by Pablo Neruda, and Garcia Lorca's poem "Ode to Walt Whitman," as well as projects experimenting with creating installations with mixed media and found objects. Ojeda's "Party Animals," submission was for designs for the donkey and elephant icons of the two United States political parties.
The files are arranged alphabetically by name of organization or subject.
This series has been digitized in entirety, with the exception of some routine travel brochures and some personal checks with personally identifiable information.
