"You take a canvas, divide it up like a checkerboard... and go from there." - Man Ray

Documenting American Arts

Get Involved

Make An Educational Gift

Checkerboard films make wonderful gifts for friends, family, museums, libraries, and one’s alma mater. Whether you select one of your personal favorites or a series of films, they represent a welcome addition to an institution’s libraries or professors as teaching tools in the classroom. Please browse our library or contact us for suggestions.
