Last week was National Library Week and we celebrated at Artpace by unveiling the new online library catalog! The Artpace Resource Library holds a collection of books and periodicals related to our Artist Alumni and general contemporary art. The collection features academic texts, artist monographs, as well as one-year backlogs of many contemporary art periodicals, all of which are open to the public for on-site use. Some of our most frequent patrons are our resident artists, who often check out books to use as sources of inspiration for their work at Artpace!
The catalog is searchable by title, author, and keyword. Looking for information about a specific Artpace Alumni Artist? We’ve tagged books with related Alumni, making it easy to search for books featuring your favorite Artpace Alum. For each new group of artists, Archives staff seeks out books related to their past work, which are highlighted during their residency and exhibition on our Featured Book wall in the Archives.
The Artpace Archives and Resource Library is open Wednesday-Friday 12-5 pm and by appointment, and is always free!
