Michael Victor II Art Library Events
Blind Date with a Book
February 1 - 25, 2023
$12 Members/ $15 Non-Members
Stop by the Springfield Art Association and participate in Blind Date with a Book! This year we have more books than ever, but you won't get to know what it is until you purchase! Don't worry though, we give you clues such as genre and the first line from the first chapter to give you an idea of what you might be getting into! Paired with customized milk or dark chocolates from Cocoa Blue Chocolates in Rochester, this unique pairing will certainly give you or someone you care for a special night in.
Art History Happy Hour
Enjoy a glass of wine and listen to a lecture given by a local art expert! Some lectures may include a hands on art project that demonstrates the topic presented. All lectures take place at SAA Main Campus inside of the M.G. Nelson Family Gallery.
New! American Sign Language Interpreters will be present during our Spring presentations, thanks to a grant from the Springfield Area Arts Council

Annual Used Book Sale
TBA for 2023
Throughout the year, the Michael Victor II Art library receives generous donations of gently used books. Art related books and other great titles for adults and youth are sold at discounted prices in support of the art library.
If you are interested in donating books for our annual sale, please contact our offices at 217-523-2631 to arrange a time to drop off. We accept everything except non-art related textbooks, yearbooks, and computer program manuals. We are also now asking that you do not donate magazines even if they are art related.
Sale will be held during the Edward's Place Fine Art Fair.
