Leading artists and architects explore relationships between comics and architecture at public symposium

A rare forum for public dialogue among leading artists, architects and scholars to explore relationships between comics and architecture at Cleveland Museum of Art on April 1.

The College of Communication and Information and the College of Architecture and Environmental Design are co-sponsoring the upcoming comics + architecture symposium at the Cleveland Museum of Art (CMA) on Friday, April 1.

"Graphic Novels / Novel Architecture" is free and open to the public and will feature some of the most important voices in the area of comics and architecture: Vera Camden, Diane Davis-Sikora, Wes Jones, Jimenez Lai, Françoise Mouly, Alison Sampson, Bob Somol, Mélanie van der Hoorn, Chris Ware and Michael Webb. Presentations and roundtable discussions  will begin at 1 PM, followed by an illustrated keynote conversation between Mouly and Ware at 5 PM. Books by presenters will be available for purchase in the CMA Store, and MIX at CMA will follow the event (http://www.clevelandart.org/events/special-events/mix-at-cma).

The symposium is free and open to the public, but reservations are recommended. Register through the museum’s Ticket Center by calling 216-421-7350 or by visiting tickets.clevelandart.org
