"Hot Ink" in VITA.MN

This week's VITA.MN features a great review of the comics show that Zander and I are in. St. Paul's Minnesota Museum of American Art is showing "Hot Ink: Comic Art in Minnesota," a collection of original art, sketchbooks, and process materials from local cartoonists.

The opening reception party was a few weeks ago and we had a blast -- Reynold Kissling has posted a few photos from the event, and there's a gallery on the MMAA's website, but if you've got any more, please send us a link!

You can pick up a copy of Vita.MN on freebie newstands through next Tuesday.

Hot Ink Opening Party -- One Week from Right Now!

I snuck a peek inside the Minnesota Museum of American Art this afternoon and witnessed the pre-show curatorial energy that precludes all good shows. MMAA didn't have a ton of time to put this show together, but you'd never know it -- Theresa Downing and her staff have put a detailed touch on everything inside the museum, from display cases showing artists' tools to a hand-painted mural as you walk in.

The big shindig is a week from today -- check out the flyer below for all the details. And as the MMAA is the only art museum in St. Paul, ergo cartoonists will rule the St. Paul art scene next Friday! See you there...
