CSULB Photography professor Mark Ruwedal has archive acquired by Stanford University

Posted on April 5, 2019 by School of Art

eiStanford University has acquired CSULB Photography professor Mark Ruwedel’s archive for its Libraries’ Department of Special Collections. The Stanford Libraries launched a new program within its Department of Special Collections focused solely on developing a rich photographic research and teaching collection. The Photography Initiative will acquire and preserve works from diverse groups of photographers, including Arthur Tress andMark Ruwedel, who recently placed their archives at Stanford. “The Photography Initiative demonstrates an institutional commitment from Stanford Libraries to our community and art form,” said Ruwedel, winner of the Scotiabank Photography Award (2014) and a Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship (2014). “In the past year, my prints have already been incorporated into classes. It is reassuring to know your work will be cared for and actually studied.” The distinguished artist recently received the Scotiabank Photography Award, a Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship, and is one of four finalists for the prestigious Deutsche Borse Photography Foundation Prize. Other artists whose archives are at Stanford include Carlton Watkins, Laura Aguilar and Allen Ginsberg.

Congratulations Prof. Ruwedal!!!
