Museum Schedule for Arnold Newman

LIFE Magazine schedules shoots at the six museums and Arnold is given an itinerary along with basic guidelines to follow for each location.

“Portland Art Museum – April 14
Thomas Colt Jr. – Director
Photograph a selection of Indian Art (old and modern), along with other purchase acquisitions.”

“Nelson Gallery of Art – April 26
Paul Gardner – Director
Items to be photographed in attached list. Please double check if any of these were bought prior to 1949, and, if so, eliminate.
Available gallery measures 37 x 25, requires 65 feet of cable. This gallery houses important statue of St. Barbara in a niche which cannot be moved. We want very much to have this statue in photograph, but if worse comes to worse, you can omit it.”
