Title: Iowa Women Artists' Oral History Project

URL: http://www.lucidplanet.com/iwa/index.php

Description: During 1998 and 1999, 79 women artists in Iowa were interviewed about their personal and family background, education, development as an artist, artwork, creative process, influences, and more. The interviews cover family and personal history (childhood through the present), education, development as an artist, artwork, creative process, influences, and more. They vary in length, but on average are one-and-one-half hours. The interviews were recorded on Maxell Type II audiotapes, using a portable Marantz stereo cassette recorder and two lapel cardiod microphones. The interviews usually took place in the artist's home or studio. The interviewer, Jane Robinette, traveled over 5,800 miles to 33 towns and cities, collecting 79 interviews on 148 tapes, resulting in 1,830 transcript pages. Project interview tapes and transcripts were gifted to the Iowa Women's Archives in Iowa City, and they are now accessible in the Archives.
