Ithaca Underground: A Decade in the Underground: Posters, Art, and Artifacts
Ithaca Underground celebrates ten years of nurturing a radically inclusive, safe space for music & art outside the mainstream. 
Over the last decade, Ithaca Underground has grown from a hobby for DIY concerts to an ever-expanding, caring community of the talented, the inspired, and the weird. 
In addition to hundreds of live, all-ages music events, IU continues to provide learning and growth opportunities for volunteer artists, designers, photographers, videographers, grant writings, sound engineers, and marketeers.
This November, IU will showcase posters and prints from the decade of events -- many for sale -- augmented with art and artifacts from the events and growth along the way.
