A table is covered with paper signs and small publications. Some of them are obviously handmade, with text written in felt-tip pen or spelled out in glued-on cut-out letters. They all have headings or titles related to voting or societal change, like, “How to Change the World,” “Many Voices. One Shared Purpose. The Right to Vote!” and “Democratize your Commute.”

Zine Workshop with Artists For Democracy

Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art Lobby
Wednesday, October 16, 2024: 12–2 p.m. (Zine Workshop)
October 17, 18, 19: 12–1 p.m. (Drop in and talk to Artists For Democracy)


Zines are a fun way to share your thoughts with the world. In this workshop, the artists from Artists for Democracy will lead you through a simple four-step process to create a zine that connects your ideas to actions—like educating others and voting. No prior art skills are required and all materials will be provided for free. You'll walk away with an amazing zine that you can copy and give to your friends. 
If you’re a first-time voter or don't know much about voting then don’t worry. Your questions can be a great starting point for a zine that helps people understand why voting matters.
Artists for Democracy will be leading the workshop in the lobby of the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art on Wednesday, October 16, from 12–2 p.m. Drop in whenever you like, but you should probably plan to spend at least an hour making your zine.
Creative materials and useful information will still be available for DIY zine-making on October 17, 18, and 19. If you’d like to talk to Artists for Democracy about voting, effective action, the democratic process (and making zines) then you can find them in the lobby on those three days from 12–1 p.m.
Please note: this programming is designed for teenagers and adults aged 16 and up.



All of the museum’s galleries are accessible to wheelchair users and other visitors who cannot use stairs. Services such as sign language interpretation can be arranged. Please contact the museum to discuss your needs: barrick.museum@unlv.edu, 702-895-3381.
About the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art
The Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art believes everyone deserves access to art that challenges our understanding of the present and inspires us to create a future that holds space for us all. Located on the campus of one of the most racially diverse universities in the U.S., we strive to create a nourishing environment for those who continue to be neglected by contemporary art museums. As the only art museum in the city of Las Vegas, we commit ourselves to leveling barriers that limit access to the arts. Our collection of artworks offers an opportunity for everyone to develop a deeper knowledge of contemporary art in Southern Nevada. The Barrick Museum is part of the College of Fine Arts at the University of Nevada Las Vegas.
