Art Resource Library

Art Resource Library

The Art Resource Library at Main Street Arts is a collection of 2,000 books (and growing) with a focus on artists, art movements, craft, design, architecture, art instruction, the philosophy of art, and more. Books in the collection range from historical to contemporary and collectively illuminate the impact of the arts on culture, society, and the human experience.

Thank you to the many donors who have given books to Main Street Arts to help start this exciting endeavor. If you are interested in donating art books, please contact executive director Bradley Butler at bradley@mainstreetartscs.org.
