Beano exhibition in Dundee
Matthew Jarron, Curator of Museum Services at the University of Dundee has posted this info on the Comics UK Forum this morning. Sounds interesting....
"This is to let you know that Happy Birthday Beano, the official 70th anniversary exhibition, has now opened at the University of Dundee's Lamb Gallery. Created in association with D C Thomson & Co Ltd, it includes a feast of original artwork from the very first issue up to today, including work by legends such as Dudley D Watkins, Allan Morley, Leo Baxendale, Ken Reid, David Law, David Sutherland, Jim Petrie, Tom Paterson and many more. Also original publicity material, letters from readers and artists, and much more. The show is on until 20 September and is open Mon-Fri 09.30-20.30, Sat 09.30-12.00. Admission is free. Tying in with the exhibition will be a special anniversary event on 30th July featuring free talks by comics historians and Beano artists, including Gary Northfield and Laura Howell - and we hope that the living legend David Sutherland will be with us!"
