Omaha Zine Fest This Weekend
March 15th, 2019
Omaha, NEâ€”Omaha Zine Fest is this Saturday at the Union for Contemporary Art, featuring all things DIY print media. With about 100 tabling from across the country, itâ€™s not the sort of work youâ€™d see in, say, Conde Nast.
Complete independent control over a medium leaves any genre on the table for artists, with zines featuring illustration, journalism, humor, and literary writing. Thereâ€™s also no rule for what a zine should look like leaving it up to the creator how to present their story on paper.
Following the success of Zine Fest, Omaha zine makers are finding a voice in the community, but Kay and Calhoun believe the medium might also become a more invaluable local commodity for artists and readers.
Omaha Zine Fest is this Saturday, March 16 at the Union for Contemporary Art in North Omaha from 11:00am to 5:00pm. The event will feature zines for sale, including numerous workshops and talks throughout the day, covering tintyping, silkscreening, art book making, and local politics.
