Who's Who in American Art

Falvey Memorial Library now has access to the online version of Who’s Who in American Art. Link to the online version through the library’s catalog, VUCat, or on the library’s Databases by Title web page.

The online version offers a number of helpful search options, such as profession, classification or media. Conceptual artist, video artist, art dealer, historian, patron and collector are some of the many different classifications that are available for searching. Searches can be limited by birthplace, birth year, and gender. The keyword search is an additional option besides the name search.

The latest print edition is shelved in the reference stacks on the first floor of Falvey.

Who’s Who in American Art contains over 14,000 biographical profiles, which include information on education, professional career, exhibitions, awards, addresses and more.
