Celebrate cartoonist and graphic novelist Art Spiegelman’s contribution to the comic arts canon and American culture on August 12th as we honor him with the 59th Edward MacDowell Medal.
• Medal Ceremony 12:15 pm
• Picnic on the grounds 1:15 pm
• Open Studios 2:00 to 5:00 p.
The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Maus will be awarded with the first-ever MacDowell Medal given in comic art at a free public event. After the Medal Ceremony, guests can enjoy picnic lunches on Colony grounds by pre-ordering or bringing their own, and then tour MacDowell's 32 studios on the only day of the year they are open to the public.
Cost: Free and open to the public. Picnic baskets go on sale this summer.
