Since its beginnings, The Evergreen State College has valued the arts, culture, and historical heritage as essential parts of education. It has displayed and collected art, artifacts, and historical documents that tell the story of Evergreen itself, of our cultural context, and of our connections to all cultures. Certain groups within Evergreen are entrusted with the display and preservation of specific collections; they are fervently committed to caring for these irreplaceable resources, believing in the communicative powers of these collections in the present time and for future generations. Six of these groups are featured in this exhibition: the Malcolm Stilson Archives and Special Collections; the Chicano/Latino Archive; the James F. Holly Rare Books Collection; the Evergreen Gallery and Art Collection; the Longhouse Education and Cultural Center; Evergreen Pictures.
Artists include: Diane Arbus, Rick Bartow, John Divola, Lyonel Grant, Allan Houser, Ester Hernandez, Helmi Juvonen, Jacob Lawrence, Larry McNeil, Ramon Murillo, Richard Misrach, Susan Pavel, Lillian Pitt, Mary Randlett, Charles Stokes, Andy Warhol, Edward Weston, and more…
