NYPL Picture Collection to Close to the Public
The New York Public Library Picture Collection is not only a resource for people living in New York City, but it’s a resource for anyone who utilizes images for research, inspiration, and visual reference. The library has decided to close the collection to the public. Jason Fulford (artist, editor, and teacher) has been using the picture collection since 1991 and spoke with HMM’s Sina Basila Hickey about why closing the collection to the public is a bad move.
For those interested in voicing their opinion about the collection, Jason recommended writing a letter to library president, Tony Marx, either by email ([email protected]) or by sending a letter directly to the main library. You can see Jason’s work at www.JasonFulford.com
