Project files include material relating to Yankowitz's art projects, teaching, and professional activities. Files related to art projects capture her range in media including sculpture, mosaics, public works, installations, sound, and new media artworks. Material may include correspondence outlining project details, proposals, sketches, photographic material, and printed material. Faculty files include course descriptions, teaching assignments, agreements, and visiting artist invitations. The file titled Womanschool contains material related to the course Yankowitz taught there called "Artists, Curators, and Critics: Is there a Female Aesthetic?" As a member of the Heresies Collective, Yankowitz participated in meetings and contributed to issues, illustrated here through meeting minutes, agendas, by-laws, proposed topics for issues, a list of members, photographs, printed material, and letters from Heresies members Lucy Lippard, Arlene Ladden, Patsy Beckert, and others. The file also includes material related to a Heresies film project dating to the 2000s. Multiple folders filed at the end of the series contain an assortment of project proposals, statements, and images detailing Yankowitz's work over the last several decades. Additional images of artwork are found with the photographic material in series 8. A small number of born-digital files includes a video recording of the Guerilla Girls accepting an award at a Skowhegan benefit, a video recording of a short animation related to an installation, and audio recordings from Scenario Sounds.
