Electronic Cataloging Project Entry #60

January 10, 2013

There are lots of different sorts of things that can arise during this project. When working through the object files for our Chuck Close, Keith series it became apparent that we didn't have explicit instruction regarding guidelines for displaying the works. We had institutional word of mouth that it was known that the six drawings needed to 'always be displayed together', but there was no documentation to corroborate this. We felt that it was important to get clarification, so I contacted Chuck Close Studios. They were able to ask the artist and send us a response:

'Chuck said that he prefers that the drawings be displayed together. However, should an occasion arise where a curator wishes to display one of the drawings alone, he would be okay with that.'

Now we have solid documentation regarding the display of the series of six drawings for future reference.
