To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ first visit to New York, and the “Ed Sullivan Show” appearances that lit the fuse on Beatlemania in America, the New York Public Library and the Grammy Museum are collaborating on a multimedia exhibition, “Ladies and Gentlemen … The Beatles!”
It will run from Feb. 6 through May 10 at the Donald and Mary Oenslager Gallery of the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, at Lincoln Center, and will include tour memorabilia, historic film clips, video interviews with musicians, as well as interactive exhibits. The installation is primarily a traveling exhibition assembled by the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles. But it is having its debut in New York — other cities have not yet been determined — and Bob Santelli, the Grammy Museum’s executive director, said that it would draw on the library’s archival holdings for material about the group’s stay in New York.
