WHAT IS THIS?
Last year, McDowell Arts Council Assoc (MACA) produced a community collaborative Art-Content Zine. A Zine (ZEEN) is a small-circulation magazine of self-published original works, usually the product of of a small group for circulation by and for enthusiasts of a particular cultural phenomenon.
Last year, we produced Tao of Bigfoot Vol. I in celebration of our regional celebrity, Bigfoot! It had a fantastic response with 20+ full color pages of Bigfoot art, poetry, stories, and more.
So...let's do it again!
Tao of BigFoot Vol. 2 is accepting submissions NOW through Aug. 24 for the publication to be released at the 2nd Annual WNC Bigfoot Festival planned for Sept. 14th 2019.
