A History of the Funnies
The Carnegie Art Center will host a month-long exhibition of original cartoon and comic art: A History of the Funnies: 1880s –2000s. Approximately 150 pieces will be on display, comprehensively chronicling over a century of incredible comic art history as a memorial to local physician Maurie Dewey. This will all be evident on July 22, 2017, from 11:00am – 4:00pm, as the Carnegie Art Center kicks-off an amazing exhibition of American cartoon history in an event open to all. From Thomas Nast’s political cartoons to George Herriman’s Krazy Kat and Dik Browne’s Hagar the Horrible, comic strip history and the American history it reflected will be on display. The Carnegie Art Center is open Thursdays 6:00–9:00pm and Saturdays 12:00–3:00pm.
