The Randolph Street Gallery Archives digital collection features photographs, event calendars, posters, and other materials documenting the nearly twenty-year history (1979-1998) of an important Chicago cooperative, gallery, and performance space. With a particular interest in the social and political issues of its time and a deep commitment to community engagement, Randolph Street Gallery was a critical venue for new forms of artistic expression and left a lasting impact both locally and globally. This growing digital collection provides a glimpse of the more extensive physical and media archives of the Randolph Street Gallery, which are housed in the Flaxman Library Special Collections.
