A steering committee for the collection was established "To honor George Maciunas and to bring together, as a tribute to this remarkable artist, a collection of works of art and documents to be held in trust at Dartmouth." Members of the committee included many of Maciunas' friends such as: Billie Maciunas, Jean Brown, John Cage, Jon Henrdicks, Claes Oldenburg, and Nam June Paik.
The collection consists of 479 works by Fluxus artists including Maciunas
as well as many others. Objects in this collection are distinguished by
the Object number prefix "GM."
