The AS220 Archives

July - September, 2018

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.

“The creative output of AS220 is both a time capsule of Providence history, and a testament to the work AS220 has done to support the city’s artistic spirit. This collection represents the complex cultural and creative relationships and work that inspires the concept of Providence as the ‘Creative Capital,’” said Kate Wells, Curator of Rhode Island Collections.
