A few more details courtesy of The New York Times:

“A $138,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation will make it possible to continue digitizing Bomb’s remaining archives, which, besides the interviews, include essays by artists about artists. The site will cross-reference the work to provide a slice of New York’s cultural history.

“Everything will be free, and users can access transcripts of interviews between unlikely artists in various fields — Tony Kushner by Craig Lucas; Vito Acconci talking to Richard Prince; Laurie Anderson and Marina Abramovic — as well as find deeper information about the artists’ lives and their work.”

Can’t wait!
