Edited by Frank Gaard. Art Police was an art zine collectively published by a dozen Minneapolis artists, including the painter Frank Gaard. The zine lasted from 1974-1994. It was known for a mixture of "low brow" humor and "high brow" sensibilities, with political cartoons appearing next to pictures of blowjobs. It is described extensively in Aarons/Roths "In Numbers" (publications by artists since 1955). The publication schedule was highly irregular, and our collation has been following the descriptions in this bibliography. The zine lasted from 1974-1994. Notable Zinesters who have contributed to Art Police were Frank Gaard, Andy Baird, Stuart Mead. Complete list of included ARTPOLICE titles (with issue counts) on request.
