      Zine Takeover

      11/10/2018 / 11:00am - 3:00pm

      Calling all zinesters, zine makers, and zine aficionados! Are you itching to share your zine about intersectional feminism in true riot grrl fashion? Have some art you have created to help educate and empower the masses? Are you on the hunt for some beautifully curated poetry? Do you want to share your latest fan fiction, hot off the presses? Your moment has come.

      Inspired by Neo Rauch’s graphic style, the Art Center, will host its first ever zine fair. A zine (/ziːn/ ZEEN; short for magazine or fanzine) is a small-circulation self-published work of original or appropriated texts and images, usually reproduced via photocopier. Zines are either the product of a single person, or of a very small group and are popularly photocopied into physical prints for circulation. Local zine makers will have the chance to sell, swap, and showcase their publications in the Art Center lobby.

      While the zine makers are integral to this event, so are you! This event is free and open to the public so come prepared to shop until you drop. Even if you have never picked up a zine before, we can "gaurenzine" a good time for all.  

      Interested in sharing your zines? Zine makers may apply online for a table at the event. The submission process will be open Monday, October 1 through Thursday, October 18. Accepted artists will be notified via email on Friday, October 19.
