Art and Architecture
125 linear feet of materials from 1764 to the present
Original art donated to the University of California at Davis is often entrusted to Archives and Special Collections, some of which hang on the Library’s walls. Private and university donations range the spectrum of artforms. Commercial artwork, design, printing, photography, and bookbinding are also areas of interest to the department. There are no geographical limitations in regard to artist or content, although the bulk of the materials pertain to California subjects. Collections particularly rich in artwork can be found under the Language and Literature and Performing Arts subject headings.
