Arthur Mitchell: Harlem’s Ballet Trailblazer

The first major exhibition devoted to Arthur Mitchell, this project celebrates the life and accomplishments of the New York City Ballet’s first African American star, and the founder and longtime director of the Dance Theatre of Harlem. Featuring rarities from Mitchell’s personal archive, which he donated to Columbia University’s Rare Book & Manuscript Library in 2014, the presentation will include photographs, drawings, posters, memorabilia, and video footage.
