Description

“Military Comic Books” Spotlight Exhibit opens Saturday, June 9th!

With the increasing popularity of comic books at the beginning of WWII, the U.S. Military began incorporating comic artwork into various training manuals, posters, and instructional booklets. This method continues today with our armed forces.

Our new spotlight exhibit showcases various examples of these manuals from WWII through Operation Iraqi Freedom, as well as several framed original pieces of comic artwork.

Bring the kids to our opening reception on Saturday, June 9th from 1:00 to 3:00 pm and they’ll get a chance to color copies of WWII comics, as well as learn how to draw and create their own characters.

The exhibit will be on display from June 9th through November 3rd.
