Nothing is more boring than going to a gallery and seeing the same pieces over and over again. After a while, it’s time to shake it up, and that’s exactly what they’re doing at London’s Cartoon Museum.
At the end of June, the Comic Creators Project will be displaying new pieces and moving around some of the tried and true art in the upstairs gallery. At the end of the process, on the 2nd July 2016, all are invited to Comic Creator’s Day to celebrate our new acquisitions!
If you’ve never been able to visit the Cartoon Museum before, then this is your perfect opportunity. Besides displays, there will be opportunities to meet artists, listen to talks, and meet other comic lovers from Greater London and around the UK.
Among the new art to go on display will be rare art from the Daily Mirror‘s much-loved “Pip, Squeak and Wilfred” strip – and the Comic Creators Project has also posted some other tantalising teasers of Things to Come here on their blog.
