DO ANYTHING PANEL DISCUSSION

JULY 15, 2012 7 to 9 PM FREE

The centerpiece to a multitude of events taking place at Space 4 Art from July 12 through 15, 2012 is the exhibit Do Anything. The show features work by individual artists and collectives who focus on do-it-yourself publishing and print projects. Employing alternative methods of production and distribution to create books, zines, and video work, the exhibiting artists work with a variety of themes to actively engage a wide audience. Opening during Comic-Con, this exhibition focuses on artistic practices that push the boundaries of contemporary publishing.

A panel discussion on July 15 from 7 to 9 PM at Space 4 Art will feature comic-artists Ed Piskor (creator of the graphic novel, Wizzywig and the web-comic Brain Rot), Ed Luce (creator of the comic books Wuvable Oaf and Henry & Glenn Forever & Ever).
