ARENA | Archive of Emperor Norton in Art, Music & Film
As part of its mission to advance the legacy of Emperor Norton, The Emperor's Bridge Campaign long has been interested in the variety of ways in which the Emperor has been taken up as a muse for art.
To engage others in this aspect of our mission, we are creating a comprehensive, authoritative, searchable digital archive of representations and interpretations of Emperor Norton in the visual arts, in music and in film — the mediums that are most readily presented online. We are calling this archive...
ARENA, the Archive of Emperor Norton in Art, Music & Film.
The "holy grail" of Searchability will come later.
For now, we just want to begin putting what we've learned under one roof — in the Arena, as it were — so that others can start using it too. And there's quite a lot of stuff in here!
Music and Film sections will be added later.
We begin with the Visual Arts.
