WCAD Zines at Cheekwood

A portion of the "core-zine" collection from WCAD is now on exhibit at Cheekwood Museum in the Post-45 Gallery. Two of the zines on display were created by Watkins students! Here is a write up about the show:

Artists’ Books from Postwar to Present
April 19 - July 6In the late nineteenth century, publishers began to employ artists as illustrators. These books were often printed on fine paper and considered luxury items. Over the course of the twentieth century, artists expanded the idea of an “artist’s book” to new levels. This exhibition will include books by artists such as Kara Walker, Stanley William Hayter, Jasper Johns, Richard Diebenkorn, Robert Motherwell, and John Baldessari.

A great review of this show titled "Literary Beauties" was published in the Nashville Scene
