Nolen Center Library
The Nolen Center Library is the heart of the Gallery’s Nolen Center for Art and Education. The library houses a focused collection of books, exhibition catalogues, articles, documents, and databases related to the highlights of our museum, and it is open to all visitors. These holdings will be of interest to students completing assignments at the Gallery. The library is open to all, with staff available to guide research and answer questions.
Programs at the Gallery provide stimulating ideas to enhance your understanding and enjoyment of works of art in our collections and exhibitions. Whether you prefer interactive conversations in front of a single work of art, lectures and symposia exploring art and ideas, or lively and creative performances related to our collections, you will find a program of interest at the Gallery.
The Gallery welcomes all visitors and is committed to making its collection, buildings, programs, and services accessible to all audiences.
