Smithsonian Institution. Visitor Information and Associates' Reception Center
Calendars of Events, 1990-1996
The Visitor Information and Associates' Reception Center (VIARC) Calendar provides comprehensive information on Smithsonian Institution-wide activities, events, and programs. It is produced monthly and is a principal reference source for information on public programs. Also included in these records are two folders containing VIARC's monthly exhibitions directories (September 1991 and August to September 1996). The Exhibitions Directory provides an Institution-wide list of Smithsonian exhibitions in three main categories: (1) On View: temporary or permanent exhibitions; (2) On Tour; and (3) In Preparation. The Directory also includes exhibitions produced by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service and the National Zoological Park. A fourth category, "Notes," highlights facts that do not fit under the other catagories.
