Keith Wilson, a San Francisco filmmaker who is doing a documentary about Frank Moore, came over this morning and filmed Mikee and I loading the first of Frank's archives into the car! The three of us drove to Bancroft Library, Keith filming the trip as we talked. It is amazing and a little unreal, but we made the delivery! Steven Black, our contact from the beginning, and the Head of Acquisitions, came out with a cart while Keith filmed the whole thing. We signed the DEED OF GIFT on the spot. One of our favorite lines is:
"The Materials will be physically stabilized and preserved by The Bancroft Library. The Materials will be placed and maintained in non-damaging containers and stored in facilities that provide appropriate temperature and humidity control and security ... ". Wow!
Frank and I used to hang out in The Bancroft Library in the 1980s. Steven said, Frank is back here now.
The first delivery today for the Frank Moore Collection included 3 boxes of paper materials (performance scripts, typewritten manuscripts, books, pamphlets, Frank's presidential paraphernalia, etc.), 7 boxes of DVDs in custom packaging (over 300 of Frank's videos) and a hard drive with over 800 of Frank's videos, plus documentation in the form of print outs for the videos. We will continue to add things to this collection as we prepare them. All of this stuff will be available at the Bancroft Library on the campus of U.C. Berkeley.

“Lauded and controversial shaman performance artist Frank Moore …
will be sure to baffle your mind. Moore will attempt to reimagine human emotion
through the use of musicians, actors, dancers, and members of the audience.
It's experimental performance art at its most experimental.”

What he's doing is impossible, and he knows it. That's good art...." L.A. Weekly

Frank Moore is indeed worth watching." High Performance Magazine
