Cultural Center in The Midtown area

Add this to my venues

The Archives of American Art was founded in Detroit in 1954 by Edgar P. Richardson, then Director of the Detroit Institute of Arts, and Lawrence A. Fleischman, a Detroit businessman and active young collector.

The Archives' initial goal to serve as microfilm repository of papers already housed in other institutions quickly expanded to collecting and preserving original material from across the country. In 1970 the Archives joined the Smithsonian Institution, sharing the Institution's mandate—the increase and diffusion of knowledge.

The mission is to illuminate scholarship of the history of art in America through collecting, preserving, and making available for study the documentation of this country's rich artistic legacy.
