ARLIS/NA New York 46th Annual Conference


Kim Collins Kim Collins - President

On behalf of the ARLIS/NA Executive Board and the Salt Lake City conference planning team, I am delighted to invite you to participate in the 47th Annual Conference of the Art Libraries Society of North America in Salt Lake City, Utah from March 26 – 30, 2019.

Our theme, Arts: In/Site • Insight • Incite • In Sight, will inspire learning and creating through thoughtful, in-depth discussions. As the preeminent event for our organization of art and visual information professionals, we encourage collaboration and sharing among forward-thinking practitioners creating innovative work. Our program co-chairs Greg Hatch and Alex Watkins are working with presenters to develop an enriching array of panels, workshops, lightning talks, posters, and discussion groups that will explore current and emergent interests across professional practice in art and architectural libraries. Local Arrangement chairs, Nicole Beatty and Luke Leither, are planning fun and creative events designed to support networking and building a more collaborative community for all our ARLIS/NA stakeholders.

Explore this website and watch this short video to learn more about:

  • The majestic conference hotel, Grand America
  • Art and architecture of downtown Salt Lake, including the main library by Moshe Safdie and the newly renovated Utah Museum of Fine Arts
  • A land art tour and a plenary featuring ‎Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty
  • Exploring “small lake city’s” breweries, gastro pubs, farm-to-table restaurants, art galleries, local book stores, and its breathtaking scenery.

Between thought-provoking sessions, useful workshops, inspiring exhibits, fun social gatherings, diverse cultural offerings, and the natural beauty in sight, it will be an exciting conference.

I hope to see you here!

Kim Collins
ARLIS/NA President
