Pacific Northwest Artists Archive

A collaborative project of the Willamette University Archives and the Hallie Ford Museum of Art, the Pacific Northwest Artists Archive (PNAA) is a collection of materials related to the careers of artists who are or were active in Oregon and Washington for the major portion of their careers. Developed as a complement to the permanent collection of the Hallie Ford Museum and housed at Willamette University’s Hatfield Library, the Archive contains artists’ correspondence and writings, exhibition catalogues and brochures, press clippings, photographs, slides of artworks, business files, and other materials related to the life work of particular artists. The PNAA Advisory Group oversees its development.
