Although Special Collections and University Archives is not a museum and we don't generally collect art, we do have more than 350 paintings, drawings, framed photographs, and other items related to our collecting areas or to existing manuscript collections. This includes works relating to aspects of Appalachian culture and history. Most of these art works are related to the American Civil War, women in architecture and design, and local history. In addition, some are connected to university history through provenance or artist. We are working on descriptive records for items in our art collection which you can browse and search within online. If you have trouble locating items or have questions, we encourage you to contact Special Collections and University Archives (email@example.com or 540-231-6308) or visit us (Mon-Fri from 8am-5pm) and we will be happy to work with you.
Although Special Collections and University Archives does not generally collect 3-D objects and artifacts, we do have a two manuscript collections that contain Appalachian related artifacts. You can also learn about artifacts in our holdings more generally through the RLCL/HUM5204 LibGuide.
