The Studio Museum in Harlem: Skin and Bones Comic Con
Thursday June 18 - Sunday, June 21, 2015
Inspired by Trenton Doyle Hancock: Skin and Bones, 20 Years of Drawing and building upon the Comic-Con platform for creating awareness of comic culture, Skin and Bones Comic Con is a weekend-long festival of happenings, talks and workshops that celebrate the dynamic contribution of comics to contemporary black art and culture.
Our jumpstART students will be at the Skin and Bones Indie Book Fair on Saturday June 20, joining forces with the Studio Museum's Expanding the Walls students for a teen arts collective exchange. This book fair celebrates the unique process and culture behind transforming ideas into visual narratives, with stands by both emerging and established zine makers, self-publishers, graphic novelists and comic book authors.
