New & Restocked!
Book Club is back! This year, we're reading The Mind of Plants: Narratives of Vegetal Intelligence, an anthology with lots of cool contributors! The book is quite the hefty volume, with each chapter devoted to a specific type of plant.
To keep it simple and ease back into book club activities, we'll just be discussing a handful of chapters. In-person meetings will be at Push/Pull every other Tuesday, 7:15pm - 8:30pm, starting April 11th, with the following chapter itenerary:
You can also discuss any of these (or other chapters!) online at any time on our Discord server!
Book Club Group Show
Artists are invited to submit work inspired by their favorite chapter(s) for a group show in July. We'll have a group work and peer review/critique/feedback session on June 13th!
Herein are news and updates about hours, closures, calls for art, show openings, and more! Also, intermittent comix, zine, and art supply reviews!
