Processing the papers of former executive director Harvey Lichtenstein and the BAM prints collection as part of the Leon Levy Digital Archives grant is no small task for the archivists here at the BAM Hamm Archives. The hard work of sorting through the papers and boxes does have its rewards, especially when it results in some interesting finds.
Such as these wonderful black and white photographs of artist Pura Fé when she performed in Native Voices: Music of the Pueblo, Songs of the City during the 1992 Next Wave Festival.
Ivonne displays some small format prints she processed from the BAM prints collection. These images were taken for the promotion of Chimére: Equestrian Theater by Zingaro during the 1996 Next Wave Festival. We are looking forward to other wonderful finds as we continue to process more and more of the collections here at the Archives. We can now digitize these objects and add them to our growing digital repository and providing more of the history of BAM to our patrons.
