Biographical Information

Ruth Sackner with her husband, Marvin, founded the Sackner Archive of Concrete and Visual Poetry in 1979. Its initial mission was to establish a collection of books, critical texts, periodicals, ephemera, prints, drawings, collages, paintings, sculptures, objects, manuscripts, and correspondence dealing with precedent and contemporary, internationally produced, examples of those styles.  The Sackners have since created the world’s largest collection of visual and concrete poetry.
