RAW, BOILED & COOKED: COMICS ON THE VERGE is coming to the Chicago Cultural Center August 7-October 3.
From the card:
"This traveling exhibition is a survey of North American graphic novelists and comic artists inspired by the ground breaking RAW MAGAZINE. It includes storyboards, installations, video and computer art by over 40 artists, including Lynda Barry, Charles Burns, Julie Doucet, Bill Griffith, Gary Panter, art spiegelman and Chicago's own Chris Ware."
The Chicago Cultural Center is located at 78 E. Washington Street, awfully close to Art Institute. It's a swell building, and best of all kids, it's free free free! If you're in town for Wizard World in August and you need a break from the super-heroics, take the train downtown and check out the show. There's an opening reception Friday August 6th from 6-8 pm, and I'm excited as all heck about the show.
