NYU Libraries Acquires the Larry Rivers Papers
We are pleased to announce that the Larry Rivers Papers have been acquired by the New York University Division of Libraries, which will make them available to researchers and scholars throughout NYU and beyond. The papers were officially delivered to NYU on September 17th 2010.
Larry purposefully documented his life and work. The papers are voluminous—250 cubic feet of correspondence, manuscripts, essays, lectures, eulogies, journals, interviews, sketches, photographs, and more than 500 hours of moving image that includes documentaries, interviews with fellow artists and performers, and feature films. There is also a significant collection of preparatory documents for Larry's work.
