Art Police was an art zine collectively published by a dozen Minneapolis artists, including the painter Frank Gaard. Art Police 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.

Material from Art Police was reprinted in a 1987 edition of Semiotext(e) magazine.
