The New Mexico Museum of Art Library and Archives has several publications from the most influential minds of the 20th century. From Robert Henri and Alfred Stieglitz to Robert Hughes and Lucy R. Lippard, we have a variety of perspectives represented. If you’ve ever felt like you don’t "get" modern or contemporary art, this is a judgement-free space to discover what it’s all about.
The library open house is an informal opportunity for you to browse books and artist files, ask questions, exchange recommendations with the Librarian and see what’s new. About 7500 books are available for browsing, reading and creative inspiration. We offer free Wifi if you wish to bring a laptop, smartphone or tablet. Come any time between 1-4pm.
The lobby and courtyard of the museum are food and drink friendly, the library is just friendly. Please finish your food and drinks before entering the library.
