An Evening with the Hernandez Brothers

Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum Grand Opening Festival of Cartoon Art

The Wexner Center is helping our neighbor, Ohio State’s Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum, celebrate its move to a wonderful new, expanded facility in Sullivant Hall. The weekend festival includes an academic conference, programs with cartoonists including Jeff Smith, Paul Pope, Jaime & Gilbert Hernandez, Stephan Pastis, and Kazu Kibuishi, tours of their new spaces, and more! Many of the events will take place at the Wexner Center. Please visit cartoons.osu.edu/FCA/2013 for more detailed information on the festival.

Join us for a freewheeling conversation between alternative comics legends Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez as they discuss their groundbreaking series Love & Rockets and their ongoing stories about Latino and Latina life, love, and punk rock on both sides of the border. The event is part of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion Distinguished Lecture Series and the keynote event for the 2013 Grand Opening Festival of Cartoon Art. Moderated by Frederick Luis Aldama, Ohio State Arts & Humanities Distinguished Professor of English.

Cosponsored by the Wexner Center for the Arts and Ohio State's University Office of Diversity and Inclusion.
