D.U. previously posted about punk taking up a good amount of space at the University of Maryland archival collection. Now, as John Kelly writes at The Washington Post, there’s a new online exhibit at UMD, “Persistent Vision: The D.C. Punk Collections at the University of Maryland.”
The exhibit is broken into helpful sections and there’s a ton of material to go through.
At the landing page, it says, “Persistent Vision is a digital exhibition that highlights the digitized materials from the DC punk collections at the University of Maryland’s Special Collections in Performing Arts (SCPA),” which is home to “thousands of items related to DC punk,” where UMD “seeks to tell the story of DC punk through the voices of its participants and the objects they left behind—fliers, fanzines, photographs, recordings, and more.”
If you know what’s good for you, check it out at the UMD website. There’s a “coming soon” bit, so keep checking back for more.
