[BKARTS] Galleries and museums that feature artists' books?

Hello list serve folks,
I am teaching an artist book workshop with Mary Laird in Florence, Italy this summer at Santa Reparata International School of Art through Dan Welden's International Workshops.
I am preparing resource lists for my students.
Here are two questions:
1. What galleries in the US or abroad feature artist books on a regular basis?
2. What museums feature artist books on a regular basis?

I am attaching my two Word documents which I have started with the information I have. Please email me or add to the attached documents I have started and send it back to me.
Thanks so much!
