Thirteen on a Match

Green, Karen L.

I've spent so much time trying to make inroads for comics and graphic novels in traditional academic departments at Columbia, that I completely forgot another natural constituency: our School of the Arts. So it was a pleasant surprise indeed to get an unexpected email this past summer from Tomas Vu-Daniel, Columbia's LeRoy Neiman Professor of Visual Arts and artistic director of the university's LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies. The big news: he was teaching a class on the production of a graphic novel, and wanted to know if he could bring his students to the library for a tour of my exhibition and a discussion of the history of the medium.
