Informal presentations by artists.

Join Bone-creator Jeff Smith and comic book artist and theorist Scott McCloud for a lively conversation about Smith’s career and each artist’s view of the practice and future of comic book art. McCloud is the author of Understanding Comics, Making Comics, and Reinventing Comics and the creator of the comic Zot!

The exhibition Jeff Smith: Bone and Beyond, on view May 10 through August 3, features original comic book drawings by the Columbus-based artist and some of the comics artists who have inspired him.

Bone and Beyond and related events are presented in collaboration with Ohio State’s Cartoon Research Library.

Today (Saturday, May 10), the Bone and Beyond exhibition is open from 11 AM until 8 PM. Jeff Smith: Before Bone, a related exhibition on view nearby at the Cartoon Research Library, is open from 1 to 5 PM. (The Cartoon Research Library is not typically open on Saturdays.)
