Did you know that the Museum’s Hirsch Library is open to the public? With thousands of art-related materials to choose from, the Hirsch Library also offers engaging exhibitions featuring the rare books collection. These exhibitions, often organized by library staff, highlight recent acquisitions, exquisitely illustrated books, and rare printed matter.
Take a 20-minute tour of The Revolution Will Be Publicized: Printing the Resistance, featuring rare periodicals from the library’s special collections. The installation focuses on political movements and change, including Mexican political cartoons and labor publications of the mid-20th century; newspapers and pamphlets from the Civil Rights and Black Power movements; and antiwar, queer, and feminist publications from the 1960s and 1970s.
