It contains extensive documentation of over 50 projects which Chong created and/or directed from 1972-2007, including original theater works, art installations, film/video productions, theater and opera directing projects, published works, and collaborations with other artists, including Meredith Monk and Muna Tseng.

The collection also includes the files of Chong's production company (Ping Chong & Co.), which contain development files and grant applications that shed further light on Chong's work and its creation. The collection contains scripts, notes, production files, photographs, negatives, slides, clippings, programs, set and technical designs, posters and electronic records.
