This just in: “Graphic Details: Confessional Comics by Jewish Women” to open at Israel’s Negev Museum of Art in spring 2016
This just in! Graphic Details will open at the Negev Museum of Art in Israel in spring 2016. The show, which I co-curated, recently ended a terrific run at the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum in Columbus, OH. Graphic Details has thrilled audiences in San Francisco, New York, Toronto, Washington, DC, Miami Beach, Portland, and London, UK. It was inspired by a story I wrote for the Forward, America’s national Jewish newspaper. The Forward is sponsoring Graphic Details.
This just in: Graphic Details: Jewish Women’s Confessional Comics in Essays and Interviews has won an Eisner Award, the comics equivalent of an Oscar! Published by McFarland, the book’s based on the exhibit I co-curated.
I contributed a bunch of essays on some of the amazing artists in the show, including Bernice Eisenstein, Sarah Glidden, Sarah Lazarovic, and Laurie Sandell.
Congratulations to my co-curator, Sarah Lightman, who edited the book, and to all of our contributors.
