Things To Do In Logan: Thursday 02/23/12 Events

BANG! THWACK! PLOP! COMICS: AN INFLUENCE ON CONTEMPORARY ART
This exhibition explores the intersection of comics and art with specific attention on how certain themes and stylistic forms have crossed over from the genre of comics into the world of visual art. The exploding popularity of comics, mostly through animation and graphic novels, shows us the graphic or comic impulse has become a compelling means of artistic communication. This exhibition helps point toward a growing interdisciplinary trend in the arts that allows for a flow of ideas between media and form, creating a liberation of high art. Location: Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art. Open To: USU Students Alumni Faculty Staff and the General Public. Admission Info: The Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art is open Monday through Friday 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and on Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m, exhibit runs February 4th through March 1st.
