The exhibition includes works by artists, graphic designers, and publishers in formats ranging from little known comic books to covers for historic books and magazines, to etchings, digital prints, drawings, and media-based works by some of today’s leading artists. The exhibition is organized by artists Mark Thomas Gibson and William Villalongo, and is accompanied by an illustrated catalogue, extensive didactics, and free public programming.
