Saturday September 29 – 7pm-6am: Scotiabank NUIT BLANCHE “StripArt” Installation

CHECK OUT StripArt at Nuit Blanche on Saturday,September 29th!

http://www.scotiabanknuitblanche.ca/project.html?project_id=1014

This fully interactive installation will give you the opportunity to participate directly with the medium of the comic book. StripArt will remind people that comics were once drawings, illustrations, thought bubbles of exposition, paper, and panels of art and narrative.

With the assistance of artists, StripArt will give people the experience of making a comic book: of thinking about character and their visual representation; dialogue and characters; of narrative arcs and punchy anecdotes.

So, come bring a comic book to life. Artists draw content sourced from your imagination, continuing plot from panels created from other participants, to create a strip of collaborative comic art.

PRESENTED BY GUERILLA PRINTING, THE COMIC BOOK LOUNGE and LOUIE DIAZ, JR.

AS THE INSTALLATION WILL TAKE PLACE AT 587A COLLEGE STREET, THE COMIC BOOK LOUNGE + GALLERY WILL REMAIN OPEN FOR THE DURATION OF THE EVENT.
