Wonder Women: On Paper and Off explores the avenues women have made in the comic and graphic industry.
This exhibition follows the history of women in comics starting in the 20th century- as artists and characters- through today’s cartoon and graphic illustrations. The Women’s Museum of California strives to emphasize the portrayal of women in comics and as artists as well as the ceiling women cartoonists broke through. This is in keeping with our aim to highlight women of wonder and our mission to preserve past struggles and inspire future generations of women to take action.
Wonder Women: On Paper and Off features the historical collection of Trina Robbins, as well as contributions from Joyce Farmer (artist), Mary Fleener (artist), Carol Lay (artist), Ron May (collector), Peiter Ortiz (collector), Mimi Pond (artist) and Andrea Tsurumi (artist).
Panel discussions will be held at the Women's Museum on July 18 and August 15. Check the calendar of events for specific details and for other events such as movies and costume competitions.
