Artist File Collection

Our collection of artist files contains artists' biographical information and records of exhibits.  This guide lists the files that include information from exhibits that have taken place in Kentucky, including artists who are not native Kentuckians.

Artists are listed in alphabetical order under each tab.  Each folder in the vertical file cabinets contains postcards and exhibition announcements.  Articles or pamphlets may be noted under the artists' names in this guide. A few art historians, gallerists and playwrights are included in the collection.

Please contact the library for more information.
