Comics have the unique ability to convey complex information quickly and effectively while engaging people of all ages, nationalities, and socio-economic backgrounds. Comics are an intimate medium allowing a single creator to inform, advocate, and document. As our modes of communication became increasingly visual, I’m interested in the growing number of ways that cartoonists are engaging with the world outside of traditional publishing venues. The work gathered here suggests many of the paths that cartoonists will travel.

The exhibition will be on display through May 22 at the Higgins Lounge at Dana Commons. For more information, visit: clarku.edu
