Recommended Reading in the Resource Library

Has an Artpace exhibition ever left you wanting more? You can delve deeper into the work of our artist alumni and the history of contemporary art in our Resource Library!  The Library houses over 1,000 books featuring Artpace alumni, many of which were donated by the artists themselves (aren’t they the best!), and recent issues of many local, national, and international contemporary art magazines.

Not sure what to read next? Come check out our Featured Books shelves, which showcase current or upcoming Artpace artists, giving visitors the chance to learn more about works on display in the galleries.


Our current Featured Books include Mungo Thomson: Time People Money Crickets, Rosa Barba: Time as Perspective, Rosa Barba: White Is an Image, as well as recent issues of Texas Monthly and San Antonio Magazine.

Come spend some time in the stacks, Wednesday-Friday 12-5pm, and deepen your contemporary art knowledge! And remember, it’s always free to visit Artpace.
