SNAG Archives

SNAG has come so far since 1969. As we look toward the future we are also celebrating our history.

SNAG Slide Archive

In 2004, SNAG donated a slide archive to The Metal Museum. It contained the portfolios of over 330 metalsmiths of national and international significance. The Metal Museum then partnered with the American Craft Council Library to make the collection available online. The complete 16,000-slide archive was digitized for long-term preservation through grants from the John and Robyn Horn Foundation and an ArtsFirst grant from the First Tennessee Bank Foundation.

The collection can be found in the American Craft Council’s Library & Archives Digital Collections.

Thank you to all of these organizations and supporters for making the image archive available today.
