Saturday Afternoon in Williamsburg: The Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Church
Late this afternoon when we got home from teaching at the wonderful Borough of Manhattan Community College, we strolled over to the Shrine Church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel for the 2011 Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival,
where we had a terrific time among the cornucopia of great art and brilliant ideas committed to print in all its myriad forms.
The Brooklyn Comics and Graphics Festival is an annual curated event organized by Desert Island, PictureBox and Bill Kartalopolous. It consists of three parts: artists and publishers displaying and selling publications; a gallery of original art; lectures and conversations on comics.
We just had time -- and not enough, really -- to see the exhibitors on two floors of the church.
Wow, there were so many!
