Howl! Arts Permanent Collection

The Howl Arts Permanent Collection comprises over 3,000 objects, including fine art, rare digital and analog media, performance art ephemera, and personal archives from the 1960s onward. Focused on downtown New York City’s often overlooked underground and experimental cultures, it documents the origins and growth of local cultural and social movements that have had far-reaching impact.

The collection offers a myriad of opportunities for new interpretations of the Punk, New-Wave, and No-Wave movements; performance art; drag; street art; public-access television; nightlife; LGBTQ activism; the AIDS epidemic; urban gentrification; and Black Lives Matter murals and other social justice movements. Highlights of the collection include:

  • The Arturo Vega Collection and Archive
  • The Brian “Hattie Hathaway” Butterick Collection and Archive
  • The Clark Render Archive
  • The Efrom Allen Collection and Archive
  • The Jeremiah Newton Candy Darling Collection and Archive
  • The Merrill Aldighieri Collection
  • The Philly Abe Collection
  • The Richard Boch Mudd Club Archive
  • The Tom Murrin Collection and Archive
