Statement Regarding Genevieve Oswald

"The Jerome Robbins Dance Division, The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, and the entire NYPL community mourns the loss of Genevieve Oswald. Gegi's passion for documenting, collecting, and preserving all forms of dance from around the world created the foundation for our collection, and for dance archives broadly. Gegi founded what is now known as the Dance Division 75 years ago exactly, and we are committed to honoring her legacy in the work that we do here every day for the next 75 years and far beyond." - Linda Murray, Curator, Jerome Robbins Dance Division
