BRADBURY ART MUSEUM KICKS OFF LEGENDS EXHIBIT
JONESBORO â€“ “LEGENDS: An Exploration of Contemporary Storytelling from Frame to Experience” is currently running at Bradbury Art Museum (BAM) at Arkansas State University. The museum features modern and contemporary art and is free to the public.
The exhibition utilizes comics as a jumping off point for a dialogue about storytelling through contemporary art-making processes. Featuring both legends in the field as well as popular legends from contemporary culture, LEGENDS seeks to explore storytelling and image making as an art form. For the installation, BAM is collaborating with Dr. Randy Duncan of Henderson State University who is the Director of The Center for Comics Studies and author of The Power of Comics.
BAM is open Tuesday â€“ Saturday from 12:00 to 5:00. Private and group tours can also be arranged with advance notice. LEGENDS runs through December 8th.
BAM is in Fowler Center, 201 Olympic Dr. Admission to the reception and exhibition is free. BradburyArtMuseum.org
