Desert Island Comic Zine Party

Sat, Oct 15, 2011
1–4 pm

Whitney Family Programs and Desert Island present a comic book fair featuring some of the most up and coming independent illustrators in New York City. In conjunction with the exhibition Lyonel Feininger: At the Edge of the World featuring Feininger’s pioneering Chicago Sunday Tribune comic strips, contemporary comic artists will be displaying and selling their work—prints, zines, buttons, and more! Kids and families can explore Feininger’s comics through drawing activities in the galleries, and each participant will receive limited edition prints by each artist to compile their own comic book.

This event will feature work by Partyka Collective (Shawn Cheng, Matt Weigle, John Mejias, and Sean McCarthy), Estrella Vega, Jen Tong, Chris Patch, Jungyeon Roh, Sto, Chris Uphues, and Noah Lyon.

Free with Museum admission; no registration required.
