The Artist Files are a locally maintained collection of specific materials about Emily Carr affiliated artists, designers, filmmakers and events. They contain exhibition announcements, invitations, artist statements, brochures, posters, pamphlets, postcards, press releases, newspaper articles, journal articles, and small publications. Older Artist Files may also contain newspaper clippings.
The Artist Files are stored under the stairs on the Mezzanine, and are filed in alphabetical order by artist's last name.
This collection of both historic and contemporary figures provides documentation of the skilled artists, designers and film makers affiliated with the University. It also emphasizes the value placed on experiential learning from practicing professionals.
