Zine / ZEEN /: The Art of Homemade Resistance
February 11 – May 22: Tuesdays – Fridays, 11 am – 4pm

Zines are an alternative approach to communication— self-published and independently produced—where zinesters have discovered their voices through making art and telling stories in their own ways. By publishing and sharing their work, zinesters and zines provide space for alternative, independent ideals communicated in approachable ways.
The exhibition will feature hundreds of diverse zines in a variety of formats from all over the country, and internationally, while highlighting some of Oregon’s most popular zinesters including: Kate Bingaman-Burt and collectors such as Doug Blandy, professor, and Director of Arts and Administration at the University of Oregon.
