Harvey Art Show Reception Friday

If I were in San Francisco this Friday, I’d attend this. The Harvey Comics Art Show, which began June 28th at the Cartoon Art Museum, will host an opening reception on Friday, August 1, from 7-9pm. Lots of original artwork (including pages by Kremer, Post, Muffatti, Taras and others) tracing the history of the comics company are on display and Harvey scholars Mark Arnold and Dave Holt will be on hand Friday to answer questions.

I hope to make it out there in October to sign copies of the Baby Huey book. Details to come. The Harvey art will be on display in San Francisco through November 30th. A New York show is in the planning stage.

    California and New York. Always only California and New York. I guess those in the cartoon cognoscenti figure us rubes in the “fly-over” states don’t give a hoot for exhibits and programs about animation and comics. Would it kill you people to come to Texas sometime?

    CA and NY are major media centers. 99.9% of the world’s cool stuff happens there, always has.

    Hi Top Cat James,

    Let me know of a good cartoon art museum in Texas and I’ll contact them, or better still, have them contact me at thft@att.net

    I’m not restricted to having the show only in CA and NY.

    As you know, Jerry, I am a true Harvey-holic! How does one get a T with the Harvey Jester on it!?

    Nice! Will be in SF in September. I’ll definitely go and see this.

    I saw this! Was there on Sunday visiting the Bay Area. There is also
    a room devoted to cartoonist Keith Knight, who went to college
    with me in Mass.

    “Let me know of a good cartoon art museum in Texas and I’ll contact them”

    If you must have a quote-unquote cartoon art museum, there’s the Toy and Action Figure Museum in Pauls Valley, Oklahoma. http://www.actionfiguremuseum.com

    That said, you’d probably draw a bigger crowd if you partnered with a local comic shop and exhibited in a regular museum. Austin Books & Comics (www.austinbooks.com) and Dallas’ Zeus Comics (www.zeuscomics.com — they run the CAPE Expo on FCBD) are two I’ try.

    Cool, Brad. I will contact the museums/comic shops you mentioned today, since the show is going from NYC to Pittsburgh in April 2009.
