We are pleased to announce the appointment of Francine Snyder as the Foundation’s first Senior Archivist. This inaugural position builds upon the newly launched website to make Rauschenberg's archives accessible to students, scholars, and the public. Snyder will be integral in providing materials for the future Rauschenberg catalogue raisonné. In addition, she will be responsible for establishing educational partnerships globally, identifying future grants for archival scholarship, and collaborating with other artists’ archives. Previously, Snyder was the Director of the Library and Archives at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Earlier this year, she was selected for the 2014 Archives Leadership Institute (ALI) and has written widely on archives and technology.
