Secrets Revealed: Media from the Mikhail Baryshnikov Archive
I'm Tara D. Kelley, the Audiovisual Specialist for the Mikhail Baryshnikov Archive, and I've been keeping secrets from you.
Over the past few months, I've been surreptitiously selecting media for preservation, viewing streaming video files, and producing records for the New York Public Library's catalog. In February, I began submitting these selections for review, preparing for the day when the wonders of Mr. Baryshnikov's collection would be revealed to you.
Well, the secret is finally out! You can now watch streaming files of the first sixteen Baryshnikov videos onsite at the Library for the Performing Arts. (If you are not at LPA, but want to plan your visit, you can view the collection records via NYPL's catalog.) I'm looking forward to revealing more details about the Mikhail Baryshnikov Archive—and our work behind the scenes at LPA—in an upcoming post.
