Last fall the Rhode Island School of Design Museum culled together an ambitious retrospective of Providence’s groundbreaking, diverse poster design scene, Wunderground. Now the curators are working on preserving a complete archive of the materials. That takes money, and time; permissions must be secured —and that’s only the beginning. So, a fundraiser has been scheduled for this Sunday, March 25th, at Providence’s own unjuried art space, AS220. The fundraiser runs from 2 to 7PM. Lightning Bolt, Lolita Black, The Set of Red Things, and Bronhard/Going Public will play. In addition, there’ll be a silent auction and raffle of artwork. All in all, a great way to spend $6 for a very good cause.
