KAPOW! Comics - an art display at Eastern Michigan University
When we read comics, we tend to look at the work as a whole; art and story together. The experience may be so engaging that we forget that the art is actually ART. But if you get the chance see the original artwork for the pages in person, the skill and beauty of that art becomes much more apparent. From March 10th to April 16th, Eastern Michigan University is giving you the opportunity to do just that!
EMU art professor Richard Rubenfeld has put together a fabulous collection of original pieces, with artwork from masters of the form. The opening, on March 12th from 4 to 7 pm, will be followed by a panel discussion featuring comic book artists and writers: Dave Coverly, Steve Lieber, Hilary Price, Sara Ryan and Len Wein! If that wasn't enough, the gallery will also have an exclusive free comic available - only 300 available.
You can find the show in the University Gallery in the EMU Student Center - that's at 900 Oakwood St, Ypsilanti, MI 48197 - and more information at EMU Art Department's website, here!
