Mark Morris Dance Group Archive launches digital exhibits

Explore multimedia exhibitions and thousands of archival materials, now accessible through Mark Morris Digital


The Mark Morris Dance Group Digital Archive — an online catalog dedicated to the preservation of MMDG works, performances, performers, and media —  is now accessible through Mark Morris Digital and features the addition of curated digital exhibitions. The Archive currently features six exhibits, with plans to update these media galleries throughout the year.

The inaugural collections include:

The enhancement of the Mark Morris Dance Group Digital Archive is made possible with support from individuals and institutions through the Mark Morris BOLD campaign’s Bold Innovations, aimed at fortifying MMDG’s virtual lifeline to global audiences through ongoing digital programming, as well as content curation and access to the Archive.

Our vision for engaging 200,000 people worldwide.

There’s still time to help us reach our first BOLD campaign benchmark to raise 5 million dollars toward our 10 million dollar goal.

When you make a multi-year commitment – in any amount – you have the opportunity to be listed on a special donor wall in our newly-named Maxine Morris Studio at the Mark Morris Dance Center.
