The John De Vincenzi Papers document De Vincenzi's activities as the chair of the Gallery Advisory Committee to the San José Fine Arts Commission.

The bulk of the documents in the collection reflect the committee's activities and interactions with the public, the City Council, the Triton Museum, and the San José City Council Art Department, between 1965 and 1973. Some documents from 1963 and 1991 are also included.
