Arts and Letters — Individual Interviews

About the interviews

The Arts and Letters — Individual Interviews subject area includes oral history interviews with artists, authors, architects, and others working in a vast array of creative media. The interviews listed here typically were not conducted as part of an on-going project. Instead, the majority of these interviews document the singular contributions of individuals to the cultural life of the United States and the larger global arena. Interviews are added to this subject category as they are completed. 

Areas covered include: painting, sculpture, photography, music, composition, architecture, landscape design, printing and book design, poetry, fiction, journalism, dance, and more. The interviews were conducted with artists, gallery owners, museum professionals, and critics.
