According to its founder Ken Friedman, "Fluxus West was established in 1966 to represent the work of the Fluxus group and its members in the Western United States and to promote and care for a wide variety of concerns in contemporary art which at the time represented highly experimental viewpoints in the art world represented by what was then an extremely small group of artists such as George Maciunas, Dick Higgins, Joseph Beuys, Christo, George Brecht, Bob Watts, et. al." The majority of the Fluxus West Collection was originally stored at the Museum of Contemporary Art in La Jolla, California, and later transferred to The University of Iowa Libraries. Several works from this collection were also shown in the travelling exhibition, Fluxus: A Conceptual Country.
