Behold the Art Fantastic: A Merril Collection Show and Tell

Get up close and personal with some of the unique and wonderful items from the Merril Collection of Science Fiction, Speculation and Fantasy! We’ll be displaying and talking about over a dozen pieces of original art that could not be featured in our current exhibit, Drawn from the Imagination. Some of these comic panels, sketches, drawings and paintings have never been on display before because they are too old, fragile, or were made on sensitive material like paper towel!

Planned highlights include original pulp art, such as the works of Frank R. Paul. We’ll also be showing off more of our original works by Canadian artists Ron Lightburn and Martin Springett.

Participants will be welcomed to a special after-hours visit to our current exhibit and get an exclusive look at these original pieces of art. Doors will open at 6:45pm and the talk will start at 7:00pm.

Located in the Merril Collection of Science Fiction, Speculation and Fantasy, on the 3rd floor of the Lillian H. Smith Branch.

Free. No registration is required. Everyone is welcome!
