Collection + Project Highlights

Launch of the Franklin Furnace Moving Image Archives
With support from the Council on Library and Information Resources, The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts, Franklin Furnace has made publicly available 140 videos containing audiovisual documentation of events, such as performance art, presented or supported by Franklin Furnace Archive, Inc.

The American Craft Council is pleased to announce the addition of a new digital collection, the Friends of Fiber Art International Artist Files.
This digital collection is a selection of the many fiber artists whose material can be found in both the Friends of Fiber Art International and the American Craft Council artist files collections. New content will be added on an ongoing basis. 

The mission of the Interference Archive is to explore the relationship between cultural production and social movements. This work manifests in an open stacks archival collection, publications, a study center, and public programs including exhibitions, workshops, talks, and screenings, all of which encourage critical and creative engagement with the rich history of social movements.
