The Smithsonian Institution's Archives of American Art Blog highlights recent acquisitions and remarkable items from the Archives, along with detailed finding aids and helpful tidbits that will facilitate browsing and exploration. As a result, this blog will be of interest to art fans as well as those interested in archiving and the digital humanities. Posts about new acquisitions feature short essays accompanied by select images or videos and, at times, links to related resources. Recent posts describe the new collection of papers by Kansas-based painter Albert Bloch; the work of photographer Cosmos Andrew Sarchiapone; and the short movies of art deco muralist Hildreth Meiere. In another entry, staff share their favorite archival tools, including wireless headphones, mechanical pencils, and the mini-spatula.
