The AS220 Archives on Exhibit

Following a several-month archival project, our Special Collections Department has officially opened the AS220 Archives to the public for research. The organizational archives of AS220 encompass over 30 years of organizational records, including the creative output of artists, performers and musicians who have used their venues to create and showcase their work.

Materials from the AS220 Collection are now on display in PPL’s Providence Journal Rhode Island Room through September.
