Artist Files and Information Files: a hidden resource revealedPosted: July 14, 2011
If you are trying to find information on local artists, the Artist Files in the Art Library will be a great resource for you. The Artist Files contain exhibit notices, brochures, articles and ephemera on artists from Kentucky and surrounding states or who have a connection to the region.
For information on art and architecture in Louisville and the surrounding area, use the Information Files which contain articles, brochures and ephemera. There is a particularly rich section on the art in the Speed Art Museum. These files will come in very handy if you have an assignment to find information on a work of art in the Speed.
Here’s what the Artist and Information file folders look like:
The Artist Files web page lists the names of the artists who have files. You must come to the Art Library to access the information.
The Information Files web page lists the subject headings of the files. Again, you must come to the library to access the information.
The Artist and Information files are located in the Art Library book stacks by aisle 13.
