 Item — Box: 1
Identifier: N8354 .G84 A8
Scope and Contents "The Guerrilla Girls are feminist activist artists. Over 55 people have been members over the years, some for weeks, some for decades. Our anonymity keeps the focus on the issues, and away from who we might be. We wear gorilla masks in public and use facts, humor and outrageous visuals to expose gender and ethnic bias as well as corruption in politics, art, film, and pop culture. We undermine the idea of a mainstream narrative by revealing the understory, the subtext, the overlooked, and the...

It Wasn't Little Rock, 2005

 Item — Box: 1
Identifier: N7433.4 .S426 I7 2005
Scope and Contents "'It Wasn’t Little Rock' was the response that black students in Arlington, Virginia often gave when asked about their experiences in the newly racially desegregated public schools of the 1960s. It was short-hand for we might have problems but we are not being subjected to the unspeakable hatred that was showered on black students when they integrated Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1957. White students spat on, beat up, yelled insults, destroyed black student lockers, threw...

Scope and Contents "Atomic explosions illustrate this otherwise decorative and useful folding fan with a tasseled slipcase.

Identifier: N7433.4 .M655 R47 2003

Reading Dick and Jane with Me, 1989

 Item — Box: 1
Identifier: N7433.4 .S426 R4 1989
Scope and Contents "Reading Dick and Jane with Me is an artist's book created to interrupt the authority of old elementary school textbooks called The Dick and Jane Readers. These textbooks of the 1940s and 1950s, used to teach reading, presented a white upper middle class suburban family as normal life for most Americans. Although the average American at that time was working class, the artist as a young girl thought these depictions meant that her family must be an aberration outside normal family life. Simple,...

Chicago After Dark, 2001

 Item — Box: 1
Identifier: N7433.4 .A43 C45 2001
Scope and Contents "In Chicago After Dark, four artists take on the crime novel and deliver four very different spins on the genre. Punctuated by pages of Chicago street maps, this project from Sara Ranchouse Publishing is visually and intellectually brassy. Starting with Kevin Riordan’s fast-talking, wise-cracking '1948: An Orwellian Odyssey' with apocalyptic pop culture collage, the book takes a cinematic turn with Susan Anderson's 'Smoke and Mirrors,' told purely in black and white night photographs. Annie...

Identifier: N7433.4 .W5 N48
Scope and Contents "In 1999, the Public Art Fund invited Lawrence Weiner, a lifelong New Yorker, to create an artwork for the city's public spaces. Almost immediately, Lawrence raised the possibility of the urban manhole cover as a potential site. Simple, utilitarian and quintessentially New York, the Con Edison manhole cover is a ubiquitous yet unassuming participant in the streetscape. Lawrence Weiner's nineteen manhole covers were installed in November 2000, the last permanently commissioned work in New York...
