Some people prefer to express themselves through images, but other artists have taken the time to write down or dictate their thoughts verbally. Visitors to this library open house will have a chance to see and read autobiographies, interviews and even poetry and recipes written by people whose artwork is collected by the New Mexican Museum of Art. Some of the artists whose writings we have are Beatrice Wood, TC Cannon, John Sloan, Alfred Morang and Faith Ringgold.
This event 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.
