The Pittsburgh Art Topics File is an extensive clippings collection containing information about art events, art galleries, art festivals, art organizations, and other subjects which have some connection to Pittsburgh. The key to this file is on index cards. Consulting the index cards with a librarian is the first step to finding information about a particular topic.
The clippings file includes catalogs, mounted pictures, newspaper and magazine clippings, postcards, and other ephemera. Carnegie Library art librarians collected these documents before the development of the Internet. This file includes rare and unique items not easily found in other places.
Coverage generally begins in the 1930’s and continues to around 2000.
