Researching Contemporary Artists: Home

This guide will help you find information on contemporary artists, artists groups, photographers, crafts people, designers, and design firms.

The online catalog

The Gund Library's catalog is part of a shared catalog with CWRU and CIM. After you get the results to your search, if you want to know only what is in the Gund Library, you will need to modify the search to limit your results to CIA's library. 

CIA patrons may borrow books from the CWRU and CIM libraries.

For the Love of God, Damien Hirst

New Orleans Mural, Banksy

Dancer, Eric Fischl

Burn, Kara Walker

Descending Light, Ai Weiwei
