Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Washington, DC

Founded in 1954, the Archives of American Art (AAA) fosters advanced research through the accumulation and dissemination of primary sources that document 200+ years of the nation’s artists and art communities. An international leader in the digitizing of archival collections, AAA has over 2 million digital images freely available online. The oral history collection includes more than 2,200 audio interviews, the largest accumulation of in-depth, first-person accounts of the American art world.

AAA retained Bow Bridge to help them build their profile in the arts community by promoting their collections, resources, programs, exhibitions, publications, acquisitions, and special events.
