A Showcase Sampling of Wanderground Resources
June 1 through August 31, 2022
Providence Public Library
Curated by Mev Miller, Lesbrarian/Instigator
Welcome to the first physical public viewing of many of the holdings in the Wanderground Archive/Library. Mev Miller shares selections from her extensive library of Lesbian/feminist publications as well as media, art, and other culturally significant items – collected over the past 40 years. The materials make up the cornerstone of Wanderground, a Lesbian Archive/Library being developed as a community-based resource for New England. This exhibit especially highlights the early days of Lesbian culture and activism (1970-2000).
