First Friday Art Walk: 30×30 Comic Artists

Friday, June 01 - 5:00pm - 7:00pm
Location: Main Library
Audience: Adults

Maine and New England are home to many extremely talented comic artists whose work is varied and diverse.  Portland Public Library aims to highlight the work and importance of this art (and literary) form through our partnership with the Maine Comic Arts Festival.  Exhibiting work by artists at the same size and shape, displayed identically lets the viewer see just how wide ranging and diverse comic art can be.  The exhibit will be on display from June 1-23rd in the Lewis Gallery and will be up during the Maine Comic Arts Festival held each year at the Library in Collaboration with Casablanca Comics.

This exhibit is proudly sponsored by Casablanca Comics.
