An exhibition with all of the original publications from the "Complete Publications in PDF Format" page and Jean Hess' collection of childhood graffiti on antique sources opened on June 6, 2008 and ran through July 5th. On Saturday Juy 7, Marc Fischer was present at the space throughout the day to show (and make scans from) underground music 'zines from the 1980s and early 1990s.

Public Collectors for July 2008 includes a retrospective of posters from the first three years of events at Knoxville’s Pilot Light (2000-2003), a selection from Marc Fischer’s collection of small press and self-published magazines, and a collection of records with repetitive titles from Bryan C. Baker. This new organization of the exhibit will run through early August.
