While we've made every effort to edit the timeline and have cross-referenced our content several times, there are undoubtedly errors. So please, if you see something, say something! We will rely on visitors to the site to help us to not only catch mistakes, but also to fill in the gaps. If you are an artist with more information, if you were in attendance at an event and have documentation that you would like to share with our archives, we invite you to contact us. Just as our events continue, this Hallwalls history project is a work in progress. We look forward to hearing from you!
