Accompanying programming, including workshops and an artist panel, will allow visitors several frames from which to view and engage with the work.

Exhibit Description: In an increasingly visual world, comics and illustration are more popular than ever. Cartoonists and illustrators from “outsider” and marginalized groups have the chance to share their perspectives with the world in ways that are funny, fantastic, deranged, critical, subversive—allowing modern comics and fantasy illustration to capture and recreate our world and what it can be. INFINITE CANVAS presents a range of work, all displayed like the unending canvases of online comics.
