The Weekender: January 26 to 29
January 26 to 29
End the first full week of classes with well-being activities on BU’s Medical Campus or check out a recently opened exhibition on comics at the College of Fine Arts Stone Gallery. Don’t miss the final weekend of Winter Weeks of Welcome activities, which includes karaoke, Splash 2.0, and a winter dance party.
Comics Is A Medium, Not A Genre
Curated by Joel Christian Gill (CFA’04), a CFA associate professor of art and chair of the visual narrative, department, this exhibition argues that comics are not (and never were) just for kids. The show portrays comics as a vehicle for creative storytelling and a “holder for meaning,” which allows the stories themselves to shine.
January 19 to March 24, at the Stone Gallery, 855 Comm Ave. Find more information here.
