In Our Time: Houston's Contemporary Arts Museum 1948-1982

This publication accompanies an exhibition designed to solicit information about and document the history of the Contemporary Arts Museum over its first 34 years.  It charts the growth of the museum from its founding by a group of Houston citizens committed to bringing contemporary art to the city.  The assembly, codification and organization of scattered records, many still in the hands of volunteers, resulted in the establishment of an archive for the Museum.  Includes a history of the institution by Cheryl A. Brutvan, Marti Mayo, and Linda L. Cathcart; and a preliminary exhibition history.  (Also see Finders/Keepers, a later and more complete publication on the Museum.)
