Art in the Union. College Unions at Work.
Moore, Norman F.
This booklet provides the technical information necessary in handling exhibits of paintings, prints, sculpture, tapestries, and artifacts of interest and value to students. It was published in response to widespread interest, by college union staff and students, in the development of good art exhibit programs and permanent art collections. The purposes and values of an art program are discussed, followed by the importance of a master plan. Existing programs are described. The remaining chapters are devoted to the problems of selection and cost, publicity and promotion, exhibition facilities, storage and inventory, care of the traveling exhibit, packing, transportation, and insurance. The appendix includes a directory of exhibit sources, a list of principal hazards to works of art, and suggested information and report forms. (KP)
