Guggenheim + Whitney

In 2011, the Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) generously funded a collaborative grant to the Guggenheim and Whitney Libraries. This project enabled each library to digitize key material from the personal libraries of Hilla Rebay, inaugural director of the Museum of Non-Objective Painting (precursor to the Guggenheim), and Juliana Force, inaugural director of the Whitney. Publications include American and European art historical texts, art exhibition catalogs, biographies of artists and collectors, philosophical and political treatises, and New York City guides and tourism pamphlets.
