Community Festival, aka ComFest, will collaborate with The Ohio State University Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum and its current exhibit, Tales From La Vida, for a special fundraising event.
The event will raise funds for CRIS and ETSS, and will feature an opening lecture by Frederick Luis Aldama, curator of the exhibit with Jenny Robb. A series of guided tours during the event will highlight the program and the day will feature special guest appearances by Tales from la Vida creators Juan Argil and JM Hunter.
Admission is free, but a donation to either CRIS or ETSS is encouraged. The free admission includes access to the entire museum, which will be open specifically for the event. The book, Tales From La Vida, A Latinx Anthology, edited by Frederick Luis Aldama and published by The Ohio State University Press, will be available for sale. The event also includes a raffle for the opportunity to win a signed copy of this groundbreaking collection. ComFest, CRIS, ETSS, and the Museum will have information tables.
