Tooned In Exhibit Opening

From CultureStrike:

Please join us for the opening reception of ‘Tooned In: Our Stories, Our Visions, celebrating the art of cartoons, illustration, and comic books by artists of color! 

Cartooning, especially in popular culture, effectively reaches a range of audiences, old and young alike! But limited representation of rich cultural identities and diverse experiences in animated cartoons, books, comic books, editorials, and beyond can feel alienating to many of our communities.

In curating this exhibit, CultureStrike showcases the compelling work of cartoonists of color, queer cartoonists, and womxn cartoonists highlighting these invisibilized and marginalized communities. ‘Tooned In celebrates cartoonists of color across various intersecting identities and their artwork, spanning themes of migration, feminism, gender, queerness, legacy, and more.

This exhibit features artwork by Anthony Coz ConoverKayan Cheung-MiawJaime CortezDiego GómezFrancis MeadBreena Nuñez PeraltaWilliam O. TylerJulio SalgadoRobert Liu-Trujillo, and Jess Wu-o.
