Our CagleCartoonist Peter Kuper, sends me this announcement of a cool event, in New York City and online, about his fantastic “insects in the library” exhibition “INterSECTS”. I wrote about this exhibition when it first started back in January. I encourage everyone to join Peter online. And enjoy Peter’s new masterpieces below.
Having spent a lifetime fascinated by flying, crawling creatures and nearly a year working inside the New York Public Library as a 2020-21 Cullman Fellow, I not only had the opportunity to explore my grant subject– the history of insects– but also the remarkable building itself.
I’m (insanely) working towards a 200+ page graphic novel INterSECTS that will take me years, but in the meantime had the great fortune to be given an exhibition in the library’s Stokes Gallery that includes excerpts of this project and my earlier graphic novel Ruins. I’ll also be bugging out with some experts on the subject, May 25th.”
The event will be streaming (and later on YouTube, so people don’t have to be in NYC to attend) Inspired by The New York Public Library’s current exhibition INterSECTS, curator and cartoonist Peter Kuper gathers his friends from the insect world to bring the exhibition to life for a special one-night-only with visual presentations and talks at the 42nd Street Library, May 25th 6:30-7:30 EST
