There are unpublished diaries, note books, and poetry; manuscript, photo, audio, and video documentation of performances, sculptures, printmaking, and the couple's 30+ large-scale monuments. Some 2000 sketches and collages constitute what I'd guess is the largest collection of Oldenburg and van Bruggen drawings.
