Art Library & Research Center

Mobile Museum of Art’s Art Library and Research Center is now open for MMofA members and local artists registered with the Teaching Artist Project (T.A.P.).

Every Thursday from noon until 5 pm (or by appointment), MMofA members and artists registered with the Museum will have access to the current art publications that the Museum subscribes such as The Art Newspaper, Art in America, Art Nexus, Architectural Digest, and various museum publications and newsletters. Guests will be able to relax in the reading area of the library. With more than 8,000 volumes in our art library and a database for searching our collection, the Art Library can serve as a great resource about art for members and artists!

The Teaching Artist Project is a database collaboration with the Mobile Arts Council and Alabama Contemporary Art Center that connects local creative folks to teaching and residency opportunities in the area. Local artists must register for T.A.P. or MMofA’s Artist Registry to gain access to the library.
