Motion picture studios have long recognized the rich potential in adapting comic strips and comic books to film, as well as the potent impact of utilizing cartooning in movie advertising. Panels & Screens: Comics & Cartoonists in Movie Advertising & Ballyhoo is a gallery exhibition that embraces both aspects of the relationship between comics, cartoonists, and the movies, presenting a selection of rare memorabilia from movies either adapted from comic strips or comic books, or movie ad campaigns using comics imagery and/or comics artists to lure audiences into movie theater; curated by Jon Chad and Stephen R. Bissette (from his SpiderBaby Archives collection).
The exhibition will be on display in the CCS Gallery, in the Colodny Building, through March 1st.
Gallery Hours: Fridays, noon-5PM
