Newspapers are an important source of information about artists. In addition to interviews with artists, newspapers provide reviews of current exhibitions, book reviews, feature stories, and obituaries. Newspapers report and help to shape public opinion and reception of art and artists
The library has newspapers online and on microfilm. Because newspaper databases contain enormous amounts of data, it is best to choose "Advanced Search" and put the artist's name in "Document Title." For a comprehensive overview of our newspaper collection, see the subject guide, "Newspapers and News Media."
