Development of a web experience and on-site interactives focused on the history of African American music at Carnegie Hall.

Carnegie Hall requests an NEH Digital Projects for the Public Discovery Grant of $30,000 to support the exploratory phase of an initiative to update and relaunch an existing interactive digital timeline of the history of African American music. The project seeks to modernize the timeline from several perspectives: design and technology, chronology, and thematic content. In its current form, the timeline’s technical infrastructure is outdated and has only limited multimedia functionality. Recognizing the enduring value of this resource and the importance of this area of American music history, Carnegie Hall is committed to redeveloping the timeline.The goal of the discovery phase work is to develop a design document that demonstrates the integration of humanities ideas, digital technology, and public outreach strategies for the updated interactive timeline.

Production of a website and interactive timeline on the history of African American music.

Carnegie Hall requests Digital Projects for the Public Production support to produce a fully-functional interactive digital timeline of the history of African American music for broad distribution to a general audience. The primary goal of the project is to create an engaging and innovative digital resource that makes humanities content on African American music, culture, and history accessible to a broad public audience. Continued funding will allow Carnegie Hall to build upon NEH support for the discovery and prototyping phases of the project, completing production and launching the new digital timeline in 2021.

Development of a website prototype and interactive timeline on the history of African American music.

Carnegie Hall requests an NEH Digital Projects for the Public Prototyping Grant of $100,000 to develop a working prototype as the next phase of an initiative to redevelop an interactive digital timeline of the history of African American music. The goal of the prototyping process is to produce an engaging and innovative resource that makes the humanities content on African American music, culture, and history accessible to a broad public audience. By engaging in an iterative, user-centered, and mobile-first design approach, Carnegie Hall intends to create a dynamic, responsive resource with multifaceted layers that can continue to grow, evolve, and be used and sustained over time. Carnegie Hall plans to relaunch the timeline prominently and support broad engagement with the new digital resource for music lovers, students, educators, and researchers worldwide.

The purchase of archival supplies to properly rehouse and store 410 architectural drawings—dated 1889 through 1977—associated with the planning, construction, and history of New York’s Carnegie Hall. The purchase of archival folders, interleaving paper, archival tubes, and polyester film would implement recommendations presented in a March 2016 collection survey conducted by conservators from the Northeast Document Conservation Center, and result in improved organization and environmental conditions for this historic collection. Significant items to be rehoused include William B. Tuthill’s 45 original drawings from the 1891 construction of Carnegie Hall, John McNamara’s 1969 pencil sketch for a new marquee, and floor-by-floor plans of the historic studio apartments once populated by some of the world’s leading artists.

The project will enable Carnegie Hall's Archives to purchase archival folders, interleaving paper, and archival polyester film to properly house the Hall’s Architectural Drawings Collection. Spanning 1889-1977, the collection consists of 410 drawings by architects associated with Carnegie Hall’s history—including William B. Tuthill, Ely Jacques Kahn and Robert Allan Jacobs (Kahn and Jacobs), and John J. McNamara. The Collection documents the construction of Carnegie Hall in 1891 and subsequent renovations and improvements. Preservation measures of this project are based on an assessment conducted in 2016 by professional consultants in paper conservation. The architectural drawings are noteworthy for those studying the humanities because they not only document the building plans of Carnegie Hall, but have broader historical significance in terms of the cultural, social, and economic trends of their time.

Hiring three consultants to assess the society's archival master recordings of concerts, television programs, and music education programs that have taken place at Carnegie Hall. The audio collection (1938-1990) includes 3,314 items in at least 13 different formats, and the videos (1951-1998) include 1,998 items in at least 11 formats. The consultants will advise the society on long-term preservation strategies for this large and diverse collection of materials.

The NEH Preservation Assistance Grant would enable Carnegie Hall to conduct a comprehensive assessment of the audio-visual collections currently held in its Archives. The assessment would be the first step toward developing a plan for preserving this vital collection, which includes audio and video recordings of thousands of concerts that have taken place at Carnegie Hall, television broadcasts of performances, and master tapes of Carnegie Hall's music education programs. Much of this collection is in danger of becoming unusable because of obsolete formats and unusable media. To conduct this assessment, Carnegie Hall will engage the firm AudioVisual Preservation Solutions.

The purchase of preservation supplies to rehouse two collections of archival materials that provide a detailed history of the last fifty years of musical performances at Carnegie Hall, from initial planning through final realization on stage. Students, teachers, production researchers, documentarians, and news organizations consult these materials extensively, and their preservation was identified as a priority in a 2009 assessment.

The project will enable Carnegie Hall's Archives to rehouse and preserve two of its paper-based collections that are core to its permanent collection of papers, programs, audio and video recordings, manuscripts, ephemera, objects, architectural drawings, photographs and other materials that document the rich and varied, 120-year history of the world renowned performing arts facility--a history that mirrors the social and cultural history of the United States. The Carnegie Hall Presents and Hall Operations Collections provide a complete record of how more than 6,000 performances have been brought to life on the three stages of Carnegie Hall since the historic structure was saved from demolition and a non-profit corporation was founded in 1961.

The purchase of archival quality containers to rehouse and preserve the audio collection of the radio program "AT&T Presents Carnegie Hall Tonight." The collection comprises 1,509 audio tapes, or 1,000 hours of programming, of the weekly series that aired from 1984 to 1988. The series featured great classical artists and orchestras-Isaac Stern, Yo-Yo Ma, Leonard Bernstein, and the Vienna Philharmonic-as well as jazz, pop, and folk figures such as Eartha Kitt, Liza Minnelli, and Pete Seeger. Besides musical performances, the hour-long broadcasts also offered commentary on musical selections, interviews of prominent artists and composers, and other programming related to special events and occasions.

The project will enable Carnegie Hall's Archives to re-house and preserve our AT&T Presents Carnegie Hall Tonight, a high priority audio collection that is core to our permanent collection. Carnegie Hall's Archives is made up of papers, programs, audio and video recordings, manuscripts, ephemera, objects, artwork, photographs and other materials that document the rich and varied 122-year history of the world renowned performing arts facility--a history that mirrors the social and cultural history of the United States. Preservation measures of this project are based on assessments conducted in 2010 by professional consultants in audiovisual conservation. This collection is a key record of Carnegie Hall's concert and event history, and contains audio representation of iconic figures and events that have shaped the history of the Hall.
