Two Institutions Of Potential Major Interest Announced
These are both PDF links, if that makes a difference to anyone out there:
* the filmmaker George Lucas plans a cultural museum with a significant illustration and cartooning component. That could be fascinating. As I recall, Lucas is one of those guys that has several pieces of key art from both of those areas.
* the Scuola Internazionale di Comics will open a branch in Chicago, which I guess beat out Miami and San Francisco according to this press release. They have nine locations in Rome. Sara Pichelli is a graduate, and Paolo Serpieri is the school's artistic director. Next year the school will celebrate its 35th birthday. They'll booth at C2E2 and will soon hold an open house.
