Performing Arts Digital Artifacts Work Featured

My recent digital compilation that tells the story of a benefit concert here in Annapolis, Maryland was just featured in the Maryland Theatre for the Performing Arts October Newsletter.

I compiled these disparate and ephemeral pieces of the story to capture elements of a very special evening featuring a piano concert given by Peter Kater as a fundraiser for the MTPA.

Current cultural archives work with a world renown performing arts organization and its digitized press clippings scrapbooks from the 1920’s through the 1980’s has opened my eyes to the power of tracing and relating causes and events in the life and culture of a major performing arts organization. This inspires me to find a way to work with print and digital content compilations, though the nature of these artifacts is that they often exist apart in diverse native resource locations.

This digital scrapbook shares the evening as it stood out at that moment for the cause, but also will hold an important role as the story of MTPA’s development unfolds over time.

Here is the shout out included in MTPA’s October Newsletter:This kind of compilation is ideal for annual reporting, engaging donors and stakeholders and, of course, bringing disparate elements of a cultural or other project together in a visually compelling collection.
