My father-in-law sent this to me…
The Milwaukee Art Museum has a nice exhibition coming up. The Masters of American Comics runs April 29 – August 13, 2006 and features McCay, Herriman, and Schulz to name just a few.
This is gonna be after Bonnie arrives, but maybe if grandma and grandpa don’t mind taking the kids for the day, the Mrs. and I can take a nice little write-off-able day trip.
So often stuff like this seems to pass us in the ol’ Midwest by. I can’t tell you how many exhibits I hear about in New York or California. You’d think Chicago would get some more of this.
Anyway, check it out…

If you go to this, I'll expect a dashing photo essay. I went to something like this years ago in Portland, Maine. The museum hung much of the art at eye-level, if you were of average size and in the fifth grade. I made the rounds hunched forward as if listening to a kid whisper (and looking at the Peanuts strips, I suppose that's true, my inner child saying hello.)
I'm really hoping to go! And, of course, my trusty digital camera will be there!
