The Funnies: Vintage Comics 1940’s – 1960’s

Exhibition Website

Nov 4 2017 - Dec 31 2017

Original comic strips by artists Milton Caniff, Charles Schulz, Chester Gould, Mort Walker, Lee Falk, and Chic Young take center stage in this memorable exhibition of more than 90 works.  The comics will transport visitors back to an age when a variety of strips — action, drama, westerns, historical and humorous — captured a nation’s imagination in the newspapers of the day.

Both daily and Sunday strips will be featured in the exhibition which also explores the creative process, production, and medium of comics.
