Comic-Con: From Mini-Con To Mega-Con
As Seen At The San Diego History Center In Balboa Park!
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3913 -     Yesterday, Vinnie and I visited the San Diego History Center located in Balboa Park.
That visit was to see their exhibit titled 'Comic-Con: From Mini-Con to Mega-Con'!
Back in July of 2011, Vinnie and I had visited the exhibit the Center held before, during, and after the 2011 Comic-Con International: San Diego.  I blogged that visit in blog #3462.
Both exhibits, the 2011 and this 2013 one, were produced from items from the Shel Dorf collection, that Shel had donated to the San Diego History Center in 2003.
Tony Kenealy had processed the original donation and produced a container list.  The collection is called the 'Shel Dorf Comic-Con Papers' with dates of 1951 - 2003.
The exhibit is in the front of the ground floor of the San Diego History Center, as seen in the photos to the right column.
There are two cases of materials shown, as well as a slideshow viewed directly above the cases.
Don't miss viewing the collection in the Library in the next floor below!  Stop and see Jane Kenealy as we did again yesterday to do so.
The collection includes Comic-Con planning, programming, and advertising materials and ephemera from 1970-2003.  Plus Shel Dorf and Comic-Con Committee paperwork and correspondence.
The Exhibit on the 1st floor runs July 9th through the 28th, but I was told yesterday that the Exhibit is to be extended.  Be sure to double check the extended date before visiting! 
However... You can still see the collection in the Library below during the Library's separate hours of visiting, 9:30 AM to 1 PM after the Exhibit runs through its time allotment. (Monday - Friday only for the Library!) There is a cost to enter the Exhibit Floor which also covers the cost of visiting the Library.
Note:  Additional photos from our visit can be found at this Special Photo Album at my Facebook Fan Page.
