Mikhail Baryshnikov, the founder and artistic director of the Baryshnikov Arts Center, is opening a campaign to raise $1 million for artistic fellowships named for the composer John Cage (1912-92) and the choreographer Merce Cunningham (1919-2009). The effort, to be announced on Thursday, is intended to give artists a place to work, specifically in Studio 6A, a 43-square-foot top-floor space at the Baryshnikov Center in Midtown Manhattan. The room, which is column free with a glorious view of the Hudson River, is to be called the John Cage and Merce Cunningham Studio.
