Not at Quimby’s, But Get Into This Anyway!!: The John Flexicorn Memorial Library

Dig this! The folks were here last week at Quimby’s collecting from contributors for their cool project. Why, what’s that, you ask? Let them tell you about it here:


The John Flaxicorn Memorial Library is a project created to encourage
communication and collaboration between comics artists at SAIC (The
School of the Art Institute of Chicago) as well as outside the school
community. Kyle O’Connell and Beth Hetland have built a library to
house multiples of comics by staff, faculty, alumni, graduating
seniors and underclassmen of SAIC. All of the copies at the show are
free for anyone to take home with them. The Library includes 54
different titles and even more contributing artists. This Library
stands as a testament to the practice of making comics at SAIC; how it
was practiced, how it is practiced and how it will be practiced.

BFA Show: Sullivan Galleries, 33 S. State St. Opens March 20th at 7pm,
runs through April 3rd
