SATURDAY, AUGUST 3, 2019
FROM 10 AM – 6 PM
Come to the first artist archiving event in Rockford and make sure to bring materials to start an archive for yourself, a space, a friend, a group, or a space—current or past!
What types of documentation are accepted?
Resumes, posters, photographs, artist statements, articles, gallery notices, videos and exhibition catalogs and so on.
Rockford Visual Art Archive files can include a variety of materials such as resumes, posters, photographs, artist statements, articles, gallery notices, videos and exhibition catalogs. NGAS prefer’s hardcopy files, but will accept digital ephemera.
In addition to files on individual artists, we are also interested in material on past and present art projects, groups and spaces in the Rockford area.
Materials can be submitted during an archiving event, open hours, scheduled appointment or mailed to New Genres Art Space, Nordlof Center, 118 N Main St, Rockford, IL 61101.
The Rockford Visual Art Archive focuses on actively maintaining an open archive of current and past Rockford area artists and art events. This archiving initiative promotes active cataloging and fosters the preservation of the artists as well as visual art events and exhibitions who continually shape Rockford’s visual art scene.
