The Harold Allen online collection features nearly 400 of Harold Allen's black and white gelatin silver print photographs, primarily of architecture, places, memorial sculpture, Egyptomania, and other subjects that Allen explored, and photographed with passion and attention to his subjects' essential formal and conceptual qualities. Titles are Harold Allen's, and dates within the title refer to the date or circa of the building or object photographed. (Note: this online collection represents a range of Allen's work throughout his career; the prints of many but not all images are in the HASC.)

The Jean Toche Mailings Collection exemplifies the mass mailings by Belgian art activist Jean Toche. Born in 1932, Toche immigrated to the US at the age of 33 and has been continuously active in New York to the present day. Political mail art is an important part of this artist’s output and is still being sent directly to targeted individuals.

Roger Brown Sketchbooks is digital collection of twenty sketchbooks belonging to artist Roger Brown (1941-1997). A graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC; BFA, 1968; MFA, 1970), for 27 years Brown made paintings, sculpture, prints, sets and costumes for theatre and opera, and large-scale murals for architectural settings. His Chicago home, studio and vast collection is now SAIC's Roger Brown Study Collection, an important artists' museum and special collection. The sketchbooks range from 1965, when he was an undergraduate at SAIC, and end with his last sketchbook dated 1993-1997.

Archive As Artistic Practice documents artistic works created by researchers an d students in response to materials in the Flaxman Library Special Collections. Beginning with the event "Adrift in the Archive," which took place in the Special Collections during the library’s February 2015 campus-wide Bibliodérive, this collection explores the library’s place at the intersection of artistic practice and archival documentation. Rather than an attempt to breathe life back into recordings of ephemeral events, this collection demonstrates that the past provides a fertile base for the growth of something entirely new. The SAIC community is invited to explore, translate, perform, and re-classify our collections by creating unique knowledge maps and visual access points at future events.
