About this collection

Since 1941, the American Craft Council has published newsletters and devoted portions of Craft Horizons and American Craft magazines to documenting Council events, exhibitions, and activities.

 

With the support of a grant from the Visual Resources Association Foundation (VRAF), the library has digitized twenty years of these newsletters. The ACC Newsletter Collection includes complete runs of two major ACC newsletters from the past: Forum (1957-59) and Outlook (1960-1976). Full-text searchable, the ACC Newsletter Collection traces the activities of Council members and staff and provide a comprehensive history of the organization.

 

In June 1977, the ACC began publishing information formerly found in its newslettersin the newly expanded Craft World section of Craft Horizons/American Craft magazine. Like Forum and Outlook, Craft World presented Council news, in addition to profiles of important people and places and information on craft events and exhibitions taking place across the United States. Craft World was issued in this fashion until the April/May 1986, after which the section was absorbed into the magazine and no longer presented as a distinct Council insert. Please visit our digital magazine collection to see Craft World newsletters from 1977-1986.
