The Museum and Laboratory of the Jewish Comics Experience is a three-part exhibit introducing the public to the vast and rich world of Jewish comics.
The Museum presents five micro-exhibits, curated by our five Partner institutions, on various topics of the Jewish experience in the comics medium. The history of comics that it is, in many ways, a history of the modern Jewish experience.
The Laboratory features exercises in character creation, storyboarding, and iconography. Visitors are invited to pick up the tools of the trade and write and draw, in or outside the box—literally and figuratively. The Laboratory additionally includes a dress-up photo op area, inviting visitors to create their own superheroes and engage in imaginative cosplay.
The exhibit also provides visitors access to the Jewish Comics Experience Reading Library, where they can relax, browse, and read Jewish comics from the last hundred years.
Through: February 18
