Subject: Arizona art history

Dear Mr. Hays,

Traditional Fine Arts Organization (TFAO) is a non-profit organization dedicated to furthering education in American art through grants, online publication and research. The home page for TFAO is located at <http://www.tfaoi.org>.

TFAO seeks to add to it's bibliography of books, journal articles, and videos devoted to Arizona representational art history. The current bibliography is at <http://www.tfaoi.org/aa/8aa/8aa228.htm>. Could you please share with us titles that you know of which we not have included?

TFAO recently published an article referring to your collection at <http://www.tfaoi.com/aa/7aa/7aa984.htm> and you are referenced in TFAO's listing of private collections at <http://www.tfaoi.com/permc/perm.htm>.

Note: TFAO also spoke with Mr. Hays on 12/31/08

Subject: video documentaries and catalogues on Arizona art

Dear Ms. Bentlage,

Your website's library page says that the library contains 60+ documentary videos. We have a page devoted to Arizona art history at <http://www.tfaoi.org/aa/8aa/8aa228.htm>. In it we have noted three videos surveying aspects of Arizona art. Also, we have a catalogue of all videos we know of that relate to American representational art at <http://www.tfaoi.org/aa/5aa/5aa96.htm>.

In 2000 the Museum had a show on Arizona art history titled "Arizona History Through Art: The Last 100 Years." Our coverage of the exhibit noted that "the exhibit will be augmented with several notable speakers lecturing on the significant artists from the last 100 years, documentary film presentations and decent-led tours for children and adults."

We both want to have our page devoted to Arizona art history and the video catalogue be as complete as possible. If your library has videos that we do not have listed we would very much appreciate learning about them.

Lastly, we are looking for more book titles surveying Arizona art history. We have located many books that pertain to native America art in Arizona, but few that relate to Anglo art.

Note: TFAO also spoke with Ms. Bentlage on 1/15/09
