Women's Studio Workshop (Kingston, NY 12401-8420)
Ann Kalmbach (Project Director: 05/16/2007 to present)

Rehousing Records Related to the History of the Women's Studio Workshop

Purchase of storage furniture and preservation supplies to rehouse archives, scrapbooks, photographs, posters, and other records documenting the work of women artists and the history of the Women's Studio Workshop since its founding in 1974.

Women's Studio Workshop (WSW) is requesting NEH support for archival preservation supplies to re-house 5,000 slides, 1,500 photographs, and 15,000 negatives documenting work by 500 contemporary women artists, 500 WSW hand-printed posters, other visual materials and paper records pertaining to WSW's artistic and community programming, 1974 to present. WSW, a women-run, women-focused visual arts organization, is the only remaining feminist art organization in the United States founded in the 1970s, and offers the only visual arts residency in the United States dedicated to supporting women artists. WSW is a specialist in artists' books, having led a revival of the genre in this country by initiating a Book Arts Grant Program in 1979. WSW has supported publication of 175 artists' books to date by an international community of artists. This project will build on two previous grants for WSW archive development supported by the NYS Archives and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
