Library Open House
New Deal Art
Do you know your WPA from your FSA and PWAP? You don’t need a PhD to understand Franklin Roosevelt’s "New Deal" programs that gave work to many artists during the Great Depression. The New Mexico Museum of Art Library and Archives contain a wealth of information about artwork that came out of these and other programs during the 1930s and 1940s.
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.
