Comic Strip

Exhibit: Beyond Words: Visual Narratives from the Block Book to the Graphic Novel

We often think of the comic strip as a rather recent invention, but sequential storytelling began in the Middle Ages, when book printers used carved wooden blocks to stamp words and images onto the page. See visual storytelling through woodcuts, engravings, comic strips, and graphic novels.

Student Artwork

Student Exhibit: Social Animals, by Krista Fay Simandl

Social Animals is a collection of oil paintings and interactive pieces that manifest social media posts in the physical world. Much like the taxidermied deer that has been immortalized on a living room wall, the Instagram selfie is an object separated from life while maintaining the appearance of vitality.
