Inhaltsangabe: This book chronicles the major milestones in the artistic, physical, and administrative history of Locoln Center?s last two-and-a-half decades. Filled with over sixty beautiful black-and-white photographs that highlight the Center?s rich cultural history, it illuminates how Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts served and supported its constituent groups while producing its own innovative artistic programming and how, in the process, it became a role model for performing arts organizations throughout the world.
Umschlagtext: John D. Rockefeller 3rd had a dream: to create a center for the arts, a place "built not just for today or tomorrow, but for generations to come," where "the arts are not for the privileged few, but for the many." That place became Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the first complex of its kind in the United States. By 1979, its twentieth anniversary, Lincoln Center had become an unofficial New York City landmark, a well-visited tourist destination, and, most especially, a place recognized throughout the world for the excellence of its artistic offerings.
But much remained to be done before Lincoln Center could fulfill Rockfeller's dream. In defining its purposes beyond that of real estatemanager, Lincoln Center had to overcome serious financial woes and the perception by outsiders that it lacked a true sense of community. Lincoln Center: A Promise Realized, 1979–2006 is the story of how Lincoln Center, the umbrella organization for its resident artistic companies, evolved to serve and support its "family" in their own remarkable artistic achievements while at the same time it broadened its own offerings, drawing new audiences to the campus and enlivening its public spaces.
Authors Stephen Stamas and Sharon Zane chronicle the major milestones in the artistic, physical, and administrative history of Lincoln Center's last two-and-a-half decades. Here, for example, is the story of Mostly Mozart and Great Performers, two of its most popular, long-running series. Here, too, is the story of the constituents that Lincoln Center helped bring into being, such as Jazz at Lincoln Center and the Film Society, and how, through its Live from Lincoln Center broadcasts, Lincoln Center became a household name. Here is a recounting of how and why, having expanded its campus in the 1980s, it recently embarked on a decade-long redevelopment project to revitalize and upgrade the campus for the twenty-first century.
Filled with over sixty beautiful black-and-white photographs that highlight the Center's rich cultural history, Lincoln Center: A Promise Realized, 1979–2006 illuminates how Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts served and supported its constituent groups while producing its own innovative artistic programming and how, in the process, it became a role model for performing arts organizations throughout the world.
