  • 37 S. Wabash Ave, Room 508

The Randolph Street Gallery Archives features photographs, event calendars, posters, and a wide variety of other materials documenting the twenty-year history (1979–98) of an important Chicago cooperative, gallery, and performance space. With a particular interest in 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. The gallery left a lasting impact both locally, nationally, and globally.‌ Visitors to the Special Collections Reading Room will encounter transmissions from the recently preserved audio visual and ephemeral holdings.
