Join us for a virtual tour of highlights from the Art Department of the Free Library of Philadelphia. Located on the second floor of the Parkway Central Library, the Art Department holds the most extensive reference and circulating collection of books, periodicals and archival material on art subjects in Philadelphia’s public library system. We’ll look at many treasures from the vault such as 17th century art manuals printed in the hand-press era, 18th century engravings, 19th century Japanese books of Hokusai’s woodblock prints and eye-popping Art Deco portfolios of designs hand-colored in pochoir, and we’ll talk to an Art Department librarian about accessing and using these materials.
