Organized by Program :
Judy Chicago Interview
Lee Krasner Interview

Background:
The "Twentieth Century Artists" project was designed to establish an archive of the visual arts. Prominent artists from around the country were to be interviewed by respected colleagues in their field. Financial support was to come from a National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) grant. Copies of the videotapes were to be placed at the Smithsonian Institution's Archives of American Art. Plans were also made to broadcast suitable portions of the interviews. However, only two artists (painter Lee Krasner and installation artist/painter Judy Chicago) were interviewed, and none of the broadcast or storage plans came to fruition.

Scope:
The videotapes consist of raw, unedited footage of interviews.
