The House that Sam Built transcripts and audio clips online

Resource comprises full transcripts and clips of audio recordings of interviews conducted by the Huntington Library, Museum, and Botanical Gardens in relation to its 2011-2012 exhibition, "The House That Sam Built: Sam Maloof and Art in the Pomona Valley, 1945-1985." The exhibition held the California home that craftsman Sam Maloof and his wife Alfreda created in the mid-1950s as its central metaphor. The research and exhibition were part of Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. a city-wide research project that focused on the postwar (1945-1980) art scene in Los Angeles. The exhibition showcased important Maloof pieces (primarily furniture) and works in various media by his friends and colleagues. Interviews were conducted with Maloof (mid-1990s) and artists from his circle (2011).
According to promotional material released at the time of the exhibition, the exhibition intended to "shed new light on the rich network of influences and exchanges that developed among artists and artisans living near the college town of Claremont in the Pomona Valley . . . Covering a dynamic period in American art, the exhibition spanned the development of Maloof's work from his earliest explorations of handcrafted furniture in the 1950s to 1985, the year he received the 'Genius Grant' from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation."
