Archiving Historic Pianism
The International Piano Archives beyond 50

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of its founding, The International Piano Archives at Maryland (IPAM) has launched an exhibition now on display in the Gallery of the Michelle Smith Performing Arts Library. This exhibition traces IPAM's history (which began in Cleveland and New York before coming to Maryland in 1977) with various treasures from the IPAM collections on view, including rare recordings, scores, and autograph letters. Also included are tributes to prominent individuals who have built and supported IPAM over the years.

Soon to be added is an interactive chalkboard, enabling visitors to leave questions and comments. An accompanying digital exhibit is also forthcoming. For more information on events marking IPAM's 50th anniversary in 2015/16, visit:
