Materials Research

Materials Library

The Fisher Fine Arts Materials Library hosts thousands of samples ranging from traditional construction materials to emergent and novel samples such as Vanta Black, electronic paint, and seaweed insulation. The aim of the collection is to bring together innovation and creativity in order to advance conceptualization through tactile exploration. We are as much of a lab or studio as we are a library collection and we draw from disciplines across campus, making us a diverse and unique resource. Search the Materials Library database to find out more about the collection.
