Feedback form is now closed.
In this media-based session, four panelists will each screen a series of short clips that illustrate how vital film and video footage is for documenting the history of decorative arts. Decorative arts librarians and instructors Beth Goodrich, John Burns, Beth Hylen, and Elizabeth Mowl Lay have selected films and videos from a variety of genres and formats: clips with archival artists-at-work footage from the American Craft Council; PBS's seminal “Craft in America” television series; video-rich e-books by the Corning Museum of Glass on Venetian glassworking; and feature-length commercial films that show how Hollywood films influenced popular fashion. In addition to seeing important examples of artists, craft, decorative arts, and design live on video, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about libraries with strong collections of decorative arts and design on video, and about various producers and sites of preservation for dec arts- related video and film.
