The Library and Research Center has compiled bibliographies and guides on a variety of topics related to women in the visual arts. These resources offer useful starting points for research on Latin American artists, women sculptors, book artists, and other topics.
The Library and Research Center’s artist files contain research material on women artists of all periods and nationalities, with a particular emphasis on artists whose work has been exhibited at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.
The artist files began as a place to house research material collected by curators and to serve as an artist registry for women artists all over the world. These files include artists’ resumes, correspondence, exhibition catalogues, and announcements, reproductions of artwork (slides and photographs), and articles and reviews from newspapers and magazines.
