Lots of fun around town last night:
Marian Runk and I went down to the Special Collections Research Collection at the University of Chicago Library for an exciting exhibition of zines, mostly penned by women. “My Life is an Open Book - DIY Autobiography” is chock full of some work by really great zinesters, including Lilli Carré, Edie Fake, DeWayne Slightweight, Marian Runk, Corrine Mucha, and yours truly. Also, they have a wall full of beautiful old books. I wanted to take pictures of every single thing on their bookshelf. The shows up till April, so if you are nearby, stop in and check it out. I’m told that if you go when it’s snowing the newly annexed dome provides a life size snow globe experience.
After filling up on BBQ from Honky Tonk, we headed to Roots and Culture to see the show that just opened - “How do I Look?” with works by Edie Fake, Erin Leland, Aay Preston-Myint, Michael Sirianni, and Latham Zearfoss. The shows up through March. I very much recommend it. You will be welcomed by Latham’s strawberry banners upon arrival, and end up in front of Edie’s excellently patterned drawings. (Which Colin looks really good next to…)
Sally Jewell gets my nomination for the United States Secretary of the Interior too.
Happy New Year!
