Comics vs Art is a playful exploration of classical art through the lens of graphic artists. Our curator, Canada Keck of Sunday Comix, challenged over 45 artists to look at selected paintings of the Western art cannon and reinterpret them with a comic twist. Artist Statement from guest curator, Canada Keck: Columbus is an amazing city for the arts. Especially vibrant is the comics community. It's always staying active and finding new ways to connect, with annual events such as the Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo (SPACE), the Independent Comics Fair (ICF), and the newest addition, Cartoon Crossroads Columbus (CXC). Columbus is home to the Billy Ireland Cartoon Museum and Library, which houses the world's largest and most comprehensive collection of comic art. The opening reception is Saturday, October 8th,at 7 pm, with members welcome to join us at the 6 pm preview. CXC will also be hosting a reception open to the public at 7 pm on Tuesday, October 11th. Come join us in this joyous celebration of comic art! Members Opeining: 6:00pm General Public: 7:00pm This event is free, with a suggested donation to Wild Goose Creative.
