Color Our Collections


If you’ve ever visited the UTA Special Collections area on the 6th floor of the Central Library, you probably know it’s strictly a pencils-only environment. But with “Color Our Collections,” we’re breaking the rules. We’ve begun selecting historical illustrations from our collections that you can download, print, and color as you wish with any medium you desire: colored pencils, markers, crayons, gel pens, or paints.

When your masterpiece is finished, share them with your friends and followers using the hashtags #colorourcollections and #utalibraries.
