About the Warfield Center Collections

The Warfield Center's art collection spans the diaspora--from African objects to work from historic and contemporary artists. The Warfield Center's art colelction is searchable in DASE (Digital Archive Services). DASE is a research and reference collection of art images, video, sound and documents that includes tens of thousands of images uploaded by the Visual Resources Collection of the Fine Arts Library.  Accessible with a UT eid and password, DASE can be used for educational purposes by current faculty, students, and staff of the University of Texas at Austin. Simply type ‘Warfield’ into the DASE search box to find images of the art in the Warfield Center’s Contemporary Art Collection. You’ll see not only the works themselves – paintings, sculpture, and prints – but invaluable detailed views. Below are examples of works in the Contemporary Art Collection taken by Mark Doroba of the Visual Resources Collection of the Fine Arts Library.
