Content Description

The Cary Graphic Arts Collection was founded at RIT in 1969. Since that time, the collection has mounted public exhibitions that showcase its holdings. Sets of didactic labels from over 100 Cary exhibitions dating from 1979 to 2019 were digitized in 2019 and archived in this collection. As new exhibitions are curated, the label content will be added and the digital collection will grow.
