Visual Art LibraryA unique collection of art resources in New London, Connecticut
"We have far more works available to refresh our memories than those which even the greatest of museums could bring together. For a "Museum without Walls" is coming into being, and (now that the plastic arts have invented their own printing-press) it will carry infinitely farther that revelation of the world of art..."
André Malraux, from Voices of Silence
What is the Visual Art Library?
With thousands of monographs, exhibition catalogs and announcements in print, the Visual Art Library (VAL) is a unique historical record of one person's love for modern and contemporary art. Supported by art book collectors who also donate to the Library, this special collection encapsulates an era in which art was vibrant. The Visual Art Library is responsible for organizing, archiving and cataloging these resources.
