Colin Marshall speaks with Josh Kun, professor in the USC Annenberg School and co-curator of the Central Library's "Songs in the Key of Los Angeles" exhibition as well as City Librarian John Szabo.
SONGS IN THE KEY OF LOS ANGELES is a multi-platform collaboration between the Library Foundation of Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Public Library, and USC professor Josh Kun that brings to life the Library's extraordinary Southern California Sheet Music Collection. Consisting of sheet music pieces that range from the 1840s through the 1950s, the Collection offers a singular portrait of Los Angeles history and culture rendered in music and visual art. The motto of the project: archives should not just be preserved and maintained. Archives should come back to life.
