Ginger Meggs to Feature in Travelling USA Exhibition

This post from The Daily Cartoonist, with thanks to Alan Gardner

John Read, the publisher of “Stay Tooned!” is curating a comic strip exhibit to travel through five major southern cities in the coming two years. He tells me in an email that after publishing “Stay Tooned!,” his next ambition is to create an art museum in the South. To get things started, he has 73 comic strip cartoonist thus far to contribute Sunday original art for a “One Fine Sunday in the Funny Pages.”

I’m beginning with an exhibit featuring currently-syndicated comic strips. This show will be a unique, one-of-a-kind collection of today’s comics, from the oldest, The Katzenjammer Kids and Gasoline Alley, to the newest, Dustin (which launches next week), and will be billed as “a celebration of a quintessentially American Sunday pleasure.” One Fine Sunday in the Funny Pages will feature the original art of 85 to 100 different comic strips and panels (that will have been) published in newspapers on the same Sunday (April 11, 2010). Alongside the framed “raw” art of the strips will be displayed the actual comics sections from newspapers across the country, giving people a behind-the-scenes, before-and-after experience. The first showing of One Fine Sunday will begin in late May/early June of 2010.
