To accommodate the extensive work involved in the renovation, the Herzfeld Foundation Print, Drawing and Photography Study Center will close for appointments beginning August 1st, 2014 and will remain closed through the duration of the construction project until Fall 2015.
The establishment of the Herzfeld Photography, Print, and Drawing Study Center in 2001 nearly tripled the amount of space devoted to works on paper. These works cannot be exposed to light for extended periods of time, but they are available for public viewing in the Herzfeld Study Center, where visitors have the unique opportunity to examine pieces in an intimate setting. The Herzfeld Study Center is located on the Mezzanine Level of the Museum. In addition to housing the Museum’s collection of works on paper, the Herzfeld Study Center contains a library of monographs on artists, catalogues raisonnés, and reference materials, along with object files and artist files.
The Museum’s collection of prints, drawings, photographs, and book arts numbers over 15,000 objects. Highlights include the following:
By appointment only (please provide two weeks advance notice)
