a reception to celebrate the gift of the Mikhail Baryshnikov Archive for The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts was held on Nov. 1
among those in attendance, other than the names heading the invitation (see scan) in the crush, were:
M. Morris, I. Mizrahi, J. Kent, C. Stearns, G. Murphy, K.McKenzie, M.vanHamel, P.McBride, J-P, Bonnefoux, M. AShley, J. deLuz, F. Franklin, P.Kolnik, L. Reinhart, Sophia? Baryshnikov, (as well as numerous others who may surface in my memory eventually).
the following amateur snapshots show a grouping w/ Baryshnikov in the foreground, and J. Davis just to the right, McBride (back to camera), chatting w/ Reinhart, and Kolnik in conversation w. Gillian Atfield, a longtime NYCB supporter.
several monitors around the room displayed videotape loops, including some historic films of Baryshnikov in Alexander Pushkin's class and the young demonstrating elements of the Vagnova syllabus. (a post-reception dinner was held at Lincoln.)

Is this display still up at the library for viewing as an installation?

I am so glad it landed here... Easier to access than a university library...

An archivist at NYPL has just posted a little more information about the archives:

A "sneak peek" of the collection is available for viewing at the library until December 3.

Please note that the archivist is posting updates on the Library's official site. This one is from March 13, 2013:

(I posted this as a separate message, but that seems to have mysteriously disappeared.)
