The 13th annual Twin Cities Zine Fest took place on September 30th in Minneapolis at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts. With more than 90 zinesters exhibiting their publications, TCZF 2017 was the largest in the event’s history. MCAD MFA 2nd year students Rachael Bonebright and Sherry Muyuan He tabled at the event, showing and selling zines and prints made by several MCAD MFA students.
“The Twin Cities Zine Fest is an annual celebration of zines and self publishing in the Twin Cities and beyond. TCZF aims to sustainably support self publishing and the DIY ethic in our communities, with an intersectional focus on politically and socially engaged zines, community partnership, and amplifying the voices of those who have been historically unheard.”
MCAD MFA student work exhibited at TCZF 2017 was made by illustrators Yuchen Zhang ’18, Xiaojie Liu ’18, Alanna Stapleton ’18, and Rachael Bonebright ’18; and graphic designers Sherry Muyuan He ’18 and María José Castillo ’18.
The event also included workshops covering topics like the history of comics, a one-hour doodle jam, letterpress, and making zine storage boxes to hold your zine collection. TCZF 2017 artwork was created by Minneapolis artist and zinester Chan Chau.
