Abstract:This study uses sense-making perspective to uncover and evaluate art-making and display processes for the purpose of developing art-as-information as an area of interest for Library and Information Science scholarship. Findings derived by examining assumptions about information, art, the work of artists, the behavior of people engaged in exhibition and appreciation of art, and materials that accompany arts activities show that visual art is indeed a source of information. As a consequence, Library and Information Science could benefit from further study of art-as-information, particularly as new, holistic models of information are emerging that reflect the complexity of information need, seeking, and use and the contexts that surround these events.
