Collection Scope and Content

This collection consists of postcards and a booklet documenting Sax’s art installation entitled “The Cobweb Club,” exhibited at the Portland Museum of Art as part of “New Natural History: An Exhibition of Work by Maine Contemporary Artists.” Sax’s installation drew from the “The Annals of the Cobweb Club,” a record kept by Margaret Jane Mussey Sweat who founded the group of women for the purpose of shared intellectual discourse and inquiry. The volume is contained in the Margaret Jane Mussey Sweat papers held at the MWWC.
