American Chickens & the AC Institute

American Chickens! magazine was a very small journal published in San Francisco and New York during the early 1990s. It consisted of four pages and a fold-out poster, and was dedicated to whatever the creators were thinking about that day: the actor Julian Sands, dentists, weddings, the board game “Sorry!,” very small things…only 12 issues were produced. Well, 11. The creators forgot to create issue #9. American Chickens! lives on in the form of the AC Institute, dedicated to the further exploration of whatever the creators are thinking about that day.
