Archive: Catalogs (PB-01)

  • Abstract

    The collection is part of the Publications Archive, and is comprised of archival copies of all catalogs published by the museum, as well as catalogs for exhibitions that were shown at the museum, but produced by other institutions. Other catalogs highlight particular aspects of the museum’s permanent collection.

  • Scope and Content Note

    The digitized catalogs currently date from 1936-1945. Digitization of these catalogs is an ongoing project, and more will be added as they are finished.

  • Provenance

    The collection was transferred from the Library. Accretions are added regularly when new materials are published.

  • Processing Note

    The archives strives to retain a minimum of 5 copies of VMFA produced catalogs, 3 copies of catalogs produced outside the museum, and 1 copy of foreign language versions of catalogs.
