Art Book Swap New York


Art Book Swap New York is a free event organized by the New Art Dealers Alliance and Lauren Wittels in collaboration with the Museum of Modern Art Library.


The public is invited to swap any art books in good condition for any one of the hundreds of art books donated by publishers, distributors, museums, galleries, and other art professionals. All remaining books are donated to the Bard Prison Initiative (BPI), which works to redefine the relationship between educational opportunity and criminal justice.
