In 1982, Richard Bruland opened Bebop Records and Fine Art with René Engel. Bruland and Engel managed the store together until Engel left the business in 1985. Bruland continued to manage the store until it closed in August 1990. During this time the store's focus shifted to a performance and gallery venue. It became known as an alternative performance place for local musicians, poets, and visual artists. Bruland created original poster artwork to announce each evening's show, which were displayed in the store's front window. The Richard Bruland Bebop Records Art Posters Collection consists of 792 original posters created by Bruland, as well as photographs and event calendars. The collection also contains articles and newspaper clippings regarding Bebop Records, and other promotional materials for the store and performances.
