A "Subject" search can be a useful way to navigate a catalog when looking for resources on a specific topic. Below are some examples of subject headings that may be useful in your searches in UC Library Search.
African American art
African American arts
African American artists
African American sculptors
African American painting
African diaspora in art
Arts, Black -- History
Subject searches can also be used for specific artists. Some examples are listed below.
Ringgold, Faith - Exhibitions
Ringgold, Faith - Criticism and Interpretation
However, the most comprehensive search can be done using the artist's name in the keyword search box. The most effective way to do this is to use quotation marks to search the name as a phrase, e.g. "Faith Ringgold". While this search will find books about Faith Ringgold, it will also include chapters of books where she is mentioned and exhibition catalogs of both solo and group shows.
