That the Columbus Museum of Art co-sponsors a residency and does an exhibit with the residency winner at the museum is the kind of wonderful thing we sometimes pass over too easily. This year's exhibit featuring work from Laura Park is as good as any they've had thus far. Seeing ten years of work from a cartoonist who in many ways is just slipping into comics culture consciousness now makes me optimistic for all the great work that may be in development in other corners of the comics world. Plus: she can flat-out draw.
If you can, I hope you'll consider going before it closes in February. Sundays at the museum are pay-what-you-will. Give me a ring, I'll come down and buy you a soda.
