The Archives' New York Research Center is Moving

Released: 4/23/12

The Archives of American Art’s New York Research Center at 1285 Avenue of the Americas will close on May 4, 2012, and reopen at its new location at 300 Park Avenue South, Suite 300, in early 2013.

While the New York Research Center is closed, researchers can direct queries to Reference Services at the Archives’ headquarters in Washington, DC by using the online Ask Us form, borrow unrestricted microfilm and oral history transcripts through interlibrary loan and, as always, view original material in our Washington, DC Research Center.
