[ zine all about it ]Courtney Brown and Jackie Barry, juniors at the University of the Arts, have concocted an ambitious extracurricular activity: a zine yard sale. "We wanted to have the local art community meet the actual community of Philadelphia," Brown explains. With around 40 expected participants, the idea evolved into an all-day event at fellow UArts junior Matt Trigaux's TrickGo Boutique. Along with zines and comics by students, the sale includes Greg Pizzoli's children's books, NoseGo's prints and the Holly Holly Hobby Hobby zine series. If you contribute a doodle during the afternoon selling period, come back at 7 p.m. to pick up a zine including your design, drink some PBR and listen to some tunes. You can also peruse other artwork and enter a raffle. A winning combo.
Sat., May 1, Zine Yard Sale, noon-4 p.m.; Collaborative Zine Release Party, 7-10 p.m., free, TrickGo Boutique, 1135 Pine St., trickgoclothing.com.
