Pollyanna 圖書館 Library (2017–) is a research infrastructure operated by non-profit organization 221A.

Description

The Sculpture Fund is a research collection created by 221A Research Fellow Amy Nugent. Over the past five years, Amy Nugent’s research has focused on the history and restitution of artists sculptors Frances Loring (1887-1968) and Florence Wyle (1881-1968), the current state of Canadian art collections, and the limited acquisition funds to support them. The Sculpture Fund collection at Pollyanna 圖書館 Library activates Frances and Florence memoirs and archives.

Nugent’s project examines the history of Frances and Florence, crucial members of Canada’s early 20th century art history. The practice and life of these artists has been unfairly eluded in national art history. In the artists’ last wills and testaments, Frances and Florence call for the creation of a fund of money available to organizations for the commissioning and acquisition of sculptural work in Canada. As a way to fulfill their final wishes, Nugent’s research will develop The Sculpture Fund, a resource available to collecting institutions, public galleries, museums, and schools for the commissioning and acquisition of sculpture work by women and non-binary artists.
