A joint project of the Frick Art Reference Library and Brooklyn Museum Libraries and Archives that digitized ephemeral exhibition checklists, pamphlets, and catalogues from eleven historically significant galleries, society clubs, and arts associations operating from the late nineteenth to the early twentieth century. With funding from the New York State Regional Bibliographic Databases Program, as part of its support of METRO’s Digital Metro New York initiative, the collection will be significantly expanded in 2012.
