DESCRIPTION

Whether used as a vehicle for self-exploration, a way to take up a political platform, or a means to reinterpret fine art, comic strips are now a genre as sophisticated as the short story or novel.  At the CJM stop on Litquake’s mini-museum crawl, join innovative comic artists as they discuss their creative process and share slides from upcoming stories. Includes Rumpus.net contributors Paul Madonna , MariNaomi, and Chelsea Martin; New York based artists Gabrielle Bell, Tom Kaczynski, Noah Van Sciver; and graphic novelist Thien Pham.

Event is part of the Litquake Museum Crawl which includes UC Berkeley Extension, Cartoon Art Museum, MoAD, YBCA, Catherine Clark Gallery, and the CJM. Visit litquake.org to learn about the Litquake Museum Crawl Pass

Public Programs at the CJM are generously supported by the Leavitt Family, Dorothy R. Saxe, and The Toole Charitable Foundation.
