The Poets' Theatre was first established by a group of poets living in Cambridge, Massachusetts in the fall of 1950. Their objective was to revive poetic drama and generate work by poets who "would act, administrate, direct, and sell tickets, while retaining total control of their own writing." In 1968 the theater building on Palmer Street burned down and the original Poets' Theatre ended. In October of 1986, a celebration was held in the Agassiz Theatre in Cambridge to memorialize the Poets' Theatre, called by Edward Gorey, a nostalgic "wake." In later years the Poets' Theatre was revived and this collection concerns the later organization

The recording captures a conversation between photographer John Schott and art historian Serge Gilbaut as they discuss the 1973 film "America's pop collector: Robert C.

Getty Research Institute
Recording captures lectures and conversations about the artisit Mark Rothko. The Getty Research Institute devoted its 2001- 2002 scholar year to exploring the role of the spectator in completing the experience and meaning of the work of visual art within the theme "Frames of Viewing: Perception, Experience, Judgment." Perhaps no artist of the recent past was more deeply concerned than Rothko with the act of seeing and the conditions under which his work would face its audience. Critical and historical discussion of his art likewise hinges, more than for many of his contemporaries, on just what is being attended to in his paintings. Rothko insisted on his own approaches to lighting and hanging his own art, providing an ideal topic for a symposium with Getty scholars and other art historians, critics, and curators to consider the act of seeing in front of a Rothko painting, and, by extension, the act of seeing itself
Cornell University Libraries
Also 5 digital audio tapes: commencements 1993, 1994; Cornell state of the university, 1993; and Cornell address by Dick Cheney
Getty Research Institute
The recording captures a conversation between director Roger Corman, actor Dick Miller, and moderator Joe Dante as they discuss the 1959 American comedy horror film, A Bucket of Blood, a low-budget look at the world of Beat-era artists, poets, and hipsters. The main character (played by Miller) is a dim and talentless busboy at a bohemian café who aspires to be a sculptor. The lengths he is willing to go in order to make it in the postwar avante-garde art world allows Corman to parody the pretentions of high art and the Hollywood studio system. Shown in conjunction with the Getty Research Institute's 2003-2004 research theme "Markets and "Value," A Bucket of Blood served as an examination of the forces that assign value to art as well as a somewhat macabre affirmation of the creative spirit

In 1999, the MCC's Folk Arts and Heritage Program succeeded the Folklife and Ethnic Arts Program, 1987-1992. Since then it has documented, presented, and supported cultural expression based on shared ethnicity, religious belief, occupational tradition, or sense of place. It identifies and documents craftspeople, performers, and cultural specialists; and seeks to help sustain the practice of tradition where they live and to increase appreciation of their artistry within the community and beyond. The program has established an ongoing regimen of documentary fieldwork, provided direct support to individual artists through Artist Fellowships and Traditional Arts Apprenticeships, and created visibility for traditional artists through print media, radio broadcasts, and bookings at regional folk festivals. The collection generated by the Folk Arts and Heritage Program comprises unique primary source materials (primarily audio recordings, visual documentation, and interviews) documenting the ...
