GUEST,Ron Olesko National Folk Museum (Greenwich Village, New York) (17) RE: National Folk Museum (Greenwich Village, New York) 27 May 03


I attended a meeting about the museum at the Folk Alliance. Charley's mention of Cecil Sharp House is very close. The purpose is more than just a museum. The intent is to provide a center for research, classroom and performance. The museum, which is putting the stress on the word "National", will house archives and collections that will be accessible for research. They hope to provide classroom space (along the lines of Old Town School) and also provide a performance space. They have looked at a couple of sites and as of this past Februrary they were looking at a space near Cooper Union.

They chose New York for several reasons, one being the connection with various folk revivals.   The access to media and services is another.
