MPA award exhibit in the Music Library

From May 3-24, 2019, the Music Library (Fenwick 2600), is hosting an exhibit of the Music Publishers Association 2018 Paul Revere Award Winners.

Established in 1964 in honor of the 200th anniversary of the first music engraving in America by the famous silversmith Paul Revere, these awards were initially given as a means of alerting the music industry to the advantages of providing the best possible publication from the viewpoint of engraving, graphic arts and production standards. Today the awards still recognize outstanding examples of graphic design, with an emphasis on usability for orchestras, educators, libraries and individuals.
