Educational programming is organized by Andrea Feller, curator of education, and support for Family Fun Day is provided by the Arizona Commission on the Arts and the Stulgaitis Family Scholastic Award in honor of Helen Flecha Polina. Community partners include the Junior League of Phoenix, Valley Metro, KAET PBS/8, the ASU Women’s Basketball team and the Ceramics Research Center’s Artists’ Advisory Committee.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

Hearkening back to Sundays of childhoods past, when there was a mad dash for the comic pages, Funny Papers (on view now through Sept. 6, 2014) explores the history of comic strips and their continued prevalence throughout art. The whole family is sure to enjoy the collection of both vintage comic strips and contemporary art infused with comic icons. You’ll leave laughing out loud — and wanting to draw some comics of your own. This exhibition is curated by Jean Makin and supported by the Evelyn Smith Exhibition Fund.
