Hello! And Welcome to Bill!

My name is Bill Rooney and I am the newest face at the Greenfield Library.  I’ll be behind the circulation desk in the evenings from Sunday to Thursday to assist you with any questions you may have about our resources.  I’ll also be taking over the responsibilities of managing the course reserves at Greenfield so feel free to heed your professors’ sage advice to come use the resources they have put aside for your benefit.

If you need to get in touch with me for any reason at all you can send me an e-mail (wrooney@uarts.edu), give me a call at the library (215-717-6280) or even better, coming to see me in person.

From Special Collections to Visual Resources; Ad Reinhardt’s How to Look at Art

 

We recently had a request to add some images from Ad Reinhardt’s famous “How to Look” series to ARTstor. We were excited to discover that we had large reproductions of the entire series right here in Special Collections! We have added all 23 images to The Visual Resources Collection of the University of the Arts in ARTstor.

 

Ad Reinhardt’s series on looking at modern art first appeared in PM magazine in 1946. The series gives a humorous look at art history, politics, culture, and art criticism.

The entire series can be seen online in the Visual Resources collection in ARTstor, or in person in Visual Resources and Special Collections, right above the Greenfield Library on the mezzanine of Anderson Hall.
