100 Years / 100 Objects presents a unique opportunity to view rarely seen items from the WAAM’s Permanent Collection and its Archives. Object-related items such as George Ault’s palette, a paint box of Frank Swift Chase, a painted kite by Anton Refregier and the program from John Cage’s inaugural performance of his seminal 4’33” concert are among the one hundred selections on display. Most of the items are drawn from the WAAM Archives, a collection of materials that chronicle the history of the Woodstock Artists Association, and that in addition to papers and printed matter, include assorted artist and WAAM related objects. The exhibition offers an insight into the history of the organization, and the artists affiliated with it, through a diverse selection of items – personal, artistic and historic.
