Boxes 20-21

Most photographs are black and white; some are the work of professional photographers and others are snapshots. This series includes a color transparency, negatives, and many contact sheets. Photographs include portraits of Rose Slivka and images of friends and colleagues. Many were taken in the course of professional travel to craft conferences and events related to her work as editor of Craft Horizons; countries visited include Turkey, Mexico, Peru and Switzerland. A relatively small numper of photographs show family and personal events. There are installation views of an apparel show held at the Museum of Contemporary Art and "Planned for Craftsmen: A Visual Definition of the Elements of Design" at an unidentified venue. Also found are photographs of crafts persons and artists at work; some are in a folder of pictures taken by Slivka's son, Marc, and others are located in files titled "National Bronze Casting Conference," "Potters Working at the Wheel," and "Foundry Workers Casting Artwork." Slivka also maintained photographs of artwork, mainly sculpture, and of miscellaneous craft objects ranging from wooden chairs to ceramics, porcelain, and fabrics by Jack Leonor Larsen.
Additonal photographs are found as enclosures to correspondence (Series 1) and with subject files (Series 5).
