May Show Records Online Now

Artist entry cards for the May Show are currently being digitized by the Ingalls Library and Museum Archives. Entry cards for the years 1919-1949 are now available on the Internet Archive. They include the name and address of the artist, the titles of works of art entered and accepted into the juried exhibition, the names of collaborators, and the exhibition category under which each work was submitted. Many cards contain multiple objects including works that were rejected by the jury.

The digitization project is ongoing and entry cards for the entire run of the exhibition through 1993 will be uploaded to the site as they are available. The archives is also updating the May Show database that lists all objects accepted into the exhibit.
