TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3871 - Back in 2010 I review blogged the SGV Comic Book Expo in blog #3239a - Part 1, and blog #3239b - Part 2.
Today I'm mentioning the upcoming SGV Comic Art Exhibit and SGV Comic Book Expo.
First of all, let me mention the Art Exhibit:
Exhibit Dates: June 10, 2013- August 10, 2013
Opening Reception: Friday, June 21, 2013 5pm-8pm
Artwork Dropoff: May 20th – May 31st 2013 (Monday-Thursday 1pm-7pm or by appt)
The reception is the Friday before the Comic Book Expo on June 23rd.
Here is a little bit of the SGV Comic Book Expo's history:
Since it’s inception, Nuvein has worked hard to connect all communities of the San Gabriel Valley to various art forms. With the surging popularity and rise of comic book cinema in the 200′s, and the great need for arts exposure in the SGV, the Nuvein Foundation decided to create an opportunity to SHOWCASE this popular and exciting art form.
Nuvein founder, and president emeritus, the late Enrique Diaz, knew all too well the magic that opportunity, the right people, and the eagerness and excitement of the youth could create around the SGV. This as well as discovering a wealth of local independent comic book creators, illustrators, animators, and promoting the formation of the SGV Cartoonistas by SGV natives Javier Hernandez, Jim Lujan, Grasiela Rodriguez, Raul Aguirre Jr., and others only led him to considering and creating the Nuvein Foundations’ “SGV Comic Book Festival”.
The initial 2008 edition took place at the Cuban Club in El Monte, a long time partner venue of Nuvein, on April 6, 2008. The SGV Comic Book Festival was a successful event where local youth, fans, and aspiring artists alike met with independent comic book creators, animators, illustrators, and the SGV Cartoonistas. The event featured workshops and live art. Information on that event can be found here
The follow up edition of the SGV Comic Book Festival took place Saturday, October 10, 2009. The event moved location to the Monrovia Library, as part of the Monrovia Fine Arts Association “Celebrate the Arts” event.The event featured independent comic book creators, animators, illustrators, and the SGV Cartoonistas. The event also featured workshops and live art. Information on that event can be found here
The most recent edition of this event was in 2010, again at the Cuban Club in El Monte on September 19, 2010. The event featured independent comic book creators, animators, illustrators, and the SGV Cartoonistas. The event also featured workshops and live art. Information on that event can be found here
Now after a 3 year hold, the Nuvein Foundation plans to relaunch this event in Baldwin Park in the
Summer of 2013 as the SGV Comic Book Expo, an event that will feature a curated comic book art themed gallery, animation festival, as well as workshops and vending from indie comic book creators from around Southern California. The event will unfold June 2013 at the Baldwin Park ARC.
Tina and I will be attending this 2013 SGV Comic Book Expo on Sunday. We won't be attending the Art Exhibit Reception though...
Here is my special photo album on the 2010 SGV Comic Book Expo, which was held at the Cuban Club, so you can see photos on what this show is about.
In addition, I review blogged the 2010 SGV Comic Book Expo in blog #3239a - Part 1, and blog #3239b - Part 2. .
This is the link to my special 2013 photo album on the 2013 SGV Comic Book Expo, where I will be uploading photos taken at the event.
Hope to see you there at the 2013 SGV Comic Book Expo! And I wonder what we will be drinking there, as it isn't at the Cuban Club this year, (see blog #3239a), so no mojitos!
