The Art Canada Institute has a mandate to further the education and awareness of Canadian art and art history, by creating comprehensive online overviews of Canadian artists. These art books are written by leading experts on the visual arts, are peer reviewed, and are free to the public. PIA is a founding patron and sponsored its initial project, the Canadian Online Book Project, with lead support of a Michael Snow online art book.
This project is supported by Partners in Art.
The ACI’s Canadian Online Art Book Project is a growing digital library of books authored by the country’s leading art experts. In 2014, the ACI published Michael Snow: Life & Work by Martha Langford.
After five years of being Canada’s leading online digital art resource, the ACI is offering its content in a print format. As an imprint of the ACI, the Canadian Art Library will publish four books annually.

ACI Teacher Resource Guides will allow educators to draw upon the depth of resources that are already available on the Art Canada Institute website. Each resource guide will be accessible, inspiring, and interdiscipl
