Jack Kirby @ 100 Exhibition

“Jack Kirby @ 100,” an exhibit of comics and prints at the Oviatt Library, commemorates the centenary of the famed artist, known for co-creating the Marvel Universe. Working across half a century of comics in diverse genres, Kirby (b. Jacob Kurtzberg, 1917-1994) is the quintessential American comic book creator, and one of the most imitated artists in American popular culture. CSUN affirmed Kirby’s legacy in 2015 with an Art Galleries exhibition, _Comic Book Apocalypse_, and is continuing the celebration this term with “Jack Kirby @ 100,” in time for the 100th anniversary of his birth.

After the success of “Full and Part (one)” in spring 2016, which featured faculty members teaching three-dimensional art classes at CSUN, “Full and Part (two)” sustains this inclusive spirit by inviting faculty members teaching two-dimensional art classes to exhibit works that represent their distinct practices. While they teach in a variety of areas, including Animation, Digital/Video, Drawing, Graphic Design, Illustration, Painting, Photography, and Printmaking, their respective works may or may not reflect this training. At last count, the Department of Art has twenty-four full-time and more than sixty part-time faculty who serve over 1000 students majoring in Art. Read more
