Part of the renovation project has involved creating new inventories of the AAC Collections. This week, we unpacked about 20 paintings that haven’t been seen since they were moved from New York in 1993. Come in and visit with us while we have them in the library over the next few weeks, or contact us if you have any information about these inspiring paintings of mountains.

We are in the process of evaluating their condition, researching provenance, and consulting with appraisers. If you have expertise in art history and are looking for a volunteer project – this is the project for you!

You can see images of some of the artwork on our Flickr page.
