You're Invited: Cut & Paste! Opening Reception


Join us on April 8, 2023 at the UArizona Poetry Center for an opening reception celebrating the exhibit Cut & Paste!: Zines from the Poetry Center's K-12 Programs and Beyond. The reception will include complementary pastries, and brief remarks by both student zine makers and the educators who have supported them.

Zines are self-published booklets that have been made by artists and writers for generations, with roots in subcultures including science fiction and punk rock. Since 2021, the UArizona Poetry Center has celebrated the bold, wild world of zines through our Brave Books: Zines and Zine Libraries program. Cut & Paste! features zines from youth creators who are part of our K-12 education programs, as well as affiliated classroom teachers and teaching artists. The exhibit will also feature zines and zine-like materials from the Poetry Center’s archives and Rare Book Room, as well as the Arizona Queer Archives and the Tucson Zine Fest.
