The Rockwell Museum will present “An Evening With Art Spiegelman” on Tuesday, September 10, in the Corning Museum of Glass Auditorium. The program begins at 7:00 p.m.
Spiegelman has almost single-handedly brought comic books out of the toy closet and onto the literature shelves. In 1992, he won the Pulitzer Prize for his masterful Holocaust narrative Maus—which portrayed Jews as mice and Nazis as cats. Maus II continued the remarkable story of his parents’ survival of the Nazi regime and their lives later in America. His comics are best known for their shifting graphic styles, their formal complexity and controversial content.
There’s an admission charge of $20, $10 for students, free for Rockwell members. Tickets, including those for Rockwell members, are available in advance at https://sforce.co/31fvar2.
