ART LIBRARY

The Yukon Arts Centre in partnership with Arts Underground has created a comprehensive Art Library, located in the Arts Underground Resource Room. The collection is made up of catalogues, reference books and videos on local, national and international contemporary art.

SECTIONS INCLUDE:

  • Individual Artists
  • Group Catalogues
  • Reference

Although this is a non-lending library, you can view the entire collection by accessing the online catalogue. You’ll find the online catalogue useful, especially if you are looking for specific reference material.
