The showcase houses unique collections including artist’s books, Latin American avant-garde collection, musical scores, and much more! Items in the showcase are primarily for in-house use, and can be obtained by giving a photo identification or UCard to one of our staff members while you use the items. Scanning and copying from most of these items is allowed within copyright.
In the tab titled “Locations and Request” the description “Fine Arts Library Collection” or “Fine Arts Library Folio” indicates the item is located in the Fine Arts & Architecture Library showcase. You may also search for a keyword or subject heading and then refine your search by selecting “Fine Arts Library Collection” from the facets on the left side of the page.
Are you searching for an item that the Fine Arts & Architecture Library doesn’t own?

The Chronicle is a visual record of the remarkable life of artist Feliks Topolski and other unique views of world events during the time of its publication from 1953 to 1979. Currently, this project contains only a small percentage of the 3000 drawings that make up the Chronicle; however, drawings have been included that demonstrate the diversity of the work and contain at least one image from each issue held by the library.
