ALT-WEEKLY COMICS

March 4 – May 2, 2015

On display in the Main Floor (Gallery 1 and 2)

The Society of Illustrators and SPX: The Small Press Expo are pleased to announce Alt-Weekly Comics, the first museum retrospective dedicated to the comics of the alternative weekly newspaper world. While alternative weekly newspapers have their roots in the immediate post-war period, the format exploded in the 1980s and ’90s. Covering issues relevant to their local communities, alternative weekly newspapers across North America expressed political and cultural points of view underrepresented in the mainstream press, and served as a platform for a dizzying array of comic strips that brought alternative expressions of the form into contact with local audiences. Alt- Weekly Comics is comprised of original artwork, artifacts and ephemera that reveal the diversity of artistic and storytelling styles of this important and influential genre. Curated by Warren Bernard and Bill Kartalopoulos.

Opening Reception: Friday, March 6
