Comic Strips & Culture 1895-1950

The unique exhibition, designed by graduate students at the Corcoran College of Art + Design in Washington, D.C., features such classics as Krazy Kat, Blondie, Pogo and Peanuts and was inspired by Associate Professor of Communication Robert Lemieux’s quest to educate the public about the cultural and historical relevance of the Sunday funnies. See original, hand-drawn panels and early newsprint pieces on loan from The Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum at Ohio State University.

Dates: October 19, 2011 -- November 19, 2011
Rice Gallery, Peterson Hall (near Alumni Hall Theatre)
2 College Hill, Westminster, MD

Complementing the exhibition will be a speaker series featuring contemporary cartoonists
