Capital Campaign Materials
The Museum of Performance + Design is a living record of San Fancisco and the Bay Area's performing arts history, from the extravagant attractions of the Gold Rush Era to the sophisticated productions of the War Memorial Opera House. The 3.5M items in the collection feature cultural icons such as Anna Halprin, Ballets Russes and Chinese theater. It represents the voices of artists, scholars, critics and enthusisasts. Exhibitions, performances, screenings, workshops, talks, Web resources and digitization program are hallmarks of our activities. MP+D is aso the official archive of the San Francisco Ballet and the San Francisco Opera. We aspire to be an active laboratory where past and present knowledge and ideas on performance and theater design are cultivated and disseminated. Archive Live: A Campaign for Sustainability will provide MP+D with the means to increase its digital capacity to preserve and share its material holdings for the new generation of culture hunters, artists and scholars.
The missions of the Museum of Performance and Design are
- to preserve the history of the performing arts in the Bay Area by collecting, archiving and making accessible material related to performance and theater design
- to foster public knowledge and appreciation of the performing arts through diverse programs onsite and online.
Our vision is to maintain a outstanding performing arts library and archive that is locally connected and broadly relevant; and to provide creative and diverse opportunities involving scholarship and the arts for diverse populations to learn about and experience the performing arts.
