Sanctuary: The Zines Edition features the work of students in the Mason School of Art “Zines and Self-Publishing” class, led by Emily Fussner. This exhibition is held in parallel with a larger exhibit, Sanctuary, organized by artists and arts management students at Mason.
Students considered a single question, “What does sanctuary mean to you?,” and responded with these intimate works that invite readers into personal, sometimes vulnerable spaces while also offering comfort and connection. The zines are exhibited in a hybrid virtual/physical space, with copies on display in Fenwick Gallery and online. Printable versions of each zine are included on the artists’ individual pages, allowing viewers to keep their own, personal copy of each work.
Sanctuary: The Zines Edition is curated by Fenwick Gallery GRA Andi Benge, with exhibition support from the Art and Art History Librarian, Stephanie Grimm.
Please note: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, access to the Fenwick Gallery in the Fenwick Library is currently limited to Mason students, staff, and faculty. Please enjoy our virtual exhibit if you are unable to visit campus.
