ART REFERENCE LIBRARY
Free and open to all interested in learning about the visual arts.
The Gorelick-Guest Collection of Books on Art lives in the Cultural Center's Art Reference Library. It enriches lives by facilitating users' discovery of information needed to advance knowledge, create meaningful experiences and support life-long learning through programs, research assistance, and access to diverse collections.
Located in the Saben Board Room, The Gorelick-Guest Collection of Books on Art has a non-circulating collection of over 2,000 publications supporting research in the visual arts. The library's reading room features comfortable seating, good lighting, free Wi-Fi, and a browsing collection of ready reference materials and hundreds of current art journals.
Unique offerings include exhibition and auction catalogs, catalogues raisonnés, international art journals, museum publications from around the world, and many resources that document local art and artists.
All resources are searchable in the Library Catalog. In addition, guests have full access to all the library's collections when visiting the reading room in person.
We thank the Gorelick - Guest families for their gift of the collection. We also thank Linda Callanan and Laura Kelley for cataloging the collection to ensure accessibility to the public.
