One year ago today, the CMA became an open access (OA) institution, defined by OA guru Peter Suber as “[b]arrier-free access to online works and other resources.” The Ingalls Library participated in the lead-up to the launch by preparing metadata, and has since had the pleasure of marketing the OA initiative.
Eighty-five years ago this month the museum hosted two of the most remarkable women of their age. Photographer Margaret Bourke-White began her career in Cleveland with a commercial studio focused on industrial photography. By 1929 she was editor and staff photographer at Fortune magazine, a post she held until 1935. Bourke-White returned to Cleveland to lecture on “Art in Industry” on December 14, 1934. The program accompanied the exhibition Machine Arts, then on view in the galleries.
