||What is the role of hand-drawn art in the digital world? Where do fine art and graphic art intersect? Acclaimed graphic novelists Daniel Clowes and Chris Ware discuss the creative process, their careers, and the field of comic art in a panel conversation with guest curator Susan Miller and OMCA Senior Curator of Art Rene de Guzman at the Oakland Museum of California on July 27 from 7:00 to 8:30 pm.|
Tickets for the panel discussion are included with Museum admission. Seating in OMCA's James Moore Theater is limited, and seating is available on a first-come, first served basis the day of the event. Early arrival is encouraged. Doors open at 6:30 pm.
Based in Oakland, Daniel Clowes is internationally acclaimed for award-winning comics, graphic novels, and screenplays. With nearly 50 publications in multiple reprints and editions in ten languages, Clowes is credited as the cartoonist most responsible for developing the graphic novel into a credible literary and fine art form. The film version of Ghost World (2001), directed by Terry Zwigoff, earned Clowes an Academy Award nomination for the screenplay.
Chris Ware is one of today's most renowned comic book artists and cartoonists, combining experimental narrative, hand lettering, graphic design, and comic book illustration. His numerous awards include the National Cartoonists Society's Award for Best Comic Book, multiple Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards, and the 2001 Guardian First Book Award. Ware was the first comics artist ever invited to exhibit at the Whitney Museum of American Art's biennial exhibition. His work has been shown in solo exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago and at the University of Nebraska's Sheldon Museum of Art.
