Abstract

Women Artists in Collaboration was created in 1985 at Brookings, South Dakota, as a small group of women artists who collaborated together on artistic presentations. The collection is composed of correspondence, financial records, images, clippings, scrapbooks and memorabilia.

Historical Note

Women Artists in Collaboration was created in 1985 at Brookings, South Dakota. It started out as a small group of women who had joined together when the Brookings Women's Center sponsored a presentation by women artists. Finding the collaboration stimulating, these women continued to work together. The group was made up of "whoever was willing to contribute" and changed from year to year. Friends of the Arts and the Brookings Women's Center provided funding for the group.

Contents Note

The Women Artists in Collaboration Records consist of various items collected by Marilyn Richardson, a co-founder of Women Artists in Collaboration. The bulk of material is correspondence, financial records and projects that the group worked on. The projects material is interesting because it deals with ideas for performances and the collaboration process. Included in the material are clippings, guest books, meeting notes, member biographies, and programs. Also included are two scrapbooks that contain pictures of performances presented by the group and other memorabilia.
