Artists’ Studio Archives Workshop
Saturday, April 20, 2024
Robert B. Haas Family Arts Library, Yale University
Lunch and refreshments will be provided at the workshop.

Open call for CT artists! Hosted by Yale University’s Robert B. Haas Family Arts Library, the Artists’ Studio Archives Workshop is an opportunity for artists to learn about and share best practices for maintaining a studio archive. These best practices can help make artwork more accessible and increase productivity in the studio.

This free workshop includes:

- Hands-on activities that cover artwork inventories and how to gain control over the documents necessary for running an active art studio.
- A panel discussion with archivist, Janine St. Germaine, & multidisciplinary artist, Julia Rooney (Yale School of Art, ‘18), whose work has included managing artist archives.
- An exploration of a curated display of artists’ archives from Yale’s special collections.

Participants will also be given a comprehensive Artists’ Studio Archives workbook and a list of resources. Some asynchronous work will be required pre-workshop. No prior experience with archiving required.

The workshop will take place on Saturday, April 20th, 2024 (10am-4pm) at the Robert B. Haas Family Arts Library (180 York St., New Haven, CT).

This workshop is open to visual artists currently residing in the state of Connecticut, including Yale School of Art students and alumni. Applications are due on Sunday, March 17, 2024. Selected participants will be notified at the end of March.
