Founded in 1947 by Russell Hartley (1926 - 1983), a dancer and designer with San Francisco Ballet, the Museum of Performance + Design was incorporated and established as a charitable organization in 1976. Seventy years of collecting has made MP+D a prominent living record of the history of the performing arts in the Bay Area and beyond. It aims to share artistic and humanistic values through a dynamic stewardship of its 3.5M-item collection and an innovative approach to public humanities.
