MoCCA - ART FESTIVAL!
Saturday & Sunday April 10 & 11, 2010
The Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art - MoCCA is pleased to announce that the next MoCCA Art Festival will take place over April 10-11, 2010. The annual two-day event attracts thousands of comic art lovers and creators from around the globe to celebrate the world's most popular art form in the heart of New York City.
Since 2002 the MoCCA Festival offers a unique venue to experience comics, mini-comics, web comics, graphic novels, animation, posters, prints, original artwork, and more. Each year, the Festival invites dozens of established and emerging creators, scholars, and other experts to participate in two days of lecture/discussion panels on a variety of comics and cartoon topics. For 2010, the panels and programs are being organized by Brian Heater (The Daily Crosshatch) and Jeff Newelt (Pekar Project, SMITH, Heeb, Royal Flush).
MoCCA Fest 2010 will again take place at the historic 69th Regiment Armory at 68 Lexington Avenue, New York, NY.
Here are just some of the exhibitors I've selected to mention here that will be there:
Trees and Hills Group - publishers of 'Seeds' that I recently reviewed (here), Pat Lewis, Brendan McGinley, LaLa Albert, Nathan Schreiber, Paige Pumphrey, Robert J Sodaro, Kim Deitch, James Kochalka, and Robert Sikoryak. PLUS just added to this blog post on April 4th: Miguel Guerra at table 26 1/2.
