At the recent ALA Annual conference in Anaheim, I had the good fortune to meet Erinn Batykefer who co-founded the Library as Incubator Project. I have been a fan and a follower of the project on Twitter, and when I met Erinn in person she said they are always looking for new libraries that support the arts programming and collaborate with artists to feature on their blog. One thing led to another. I sent them a list of performing arts libraries and organizations, exchanged emails with Laura Damon-Moore and they invited me to write a couple of profiles for their blog! The first post about the Performing Arts Library at the Museum of Performance and Design came out today (see the link below) and the next post about the Dance Heritage Coalition will go up in September.
What are your favorite libraries that support and encourage library-artist collaborations?
