It was a study collection. People from all over the world were making pilgrimages to the Shaker seed house, which Maciunas transformed into an archive. All of the drawers were built into the walls, with little knobs and a big Shaker table down the middle of the room where she had Fluxus boxes and that type of thing out.

A lot of people came to see the collection, including Yoko Ono and John Lennon. It was a very important study collection of Fluxus and the biggest in the country at the time. You could just rummage through these drawers. It was like an amazing smorgasbord of postwar avant-garde art.
