"Apocalyptic Giggles:The Industrial Cartoon Humor of Derf"
1999-07-10 until 1999-10-24
Akron Art Museum
Akron, OH, USA United States of America

What is there left to laugh about in a world run amokNULL Find out this summer when Cleveland-based artist Derf, one of the nation's leading alternative cartoonists, has his first museum exhibition at the Akron Art Museum. Derf's caustic cartoons, distinguished by his bracing wit and edgy rendering style, offer humorous insight into human behavior. This self-taught artist's comic strip, The City, is a mordant take on urban existence that appears regularly in nearly 60 publications, including The Village Voice, The Chicago Reader and The Cleveland Free Times. Derf's images have also graced t-shirts, CD covers and appeared in The Wall Street Journal and the Akron Beacon Journal. This exhibition includes cartoon strips, drawings and posters, and offers a refreshing look into the mind of a successful cartoonist working outside the mainstream.

Learn more about Derf's art and unusual outlook on life at an informal question and answer session, moderated by Akron Beacon Journal writer and Wheels of Fortune author David Giffels, on Sunday, September 26 at 2:30 p.m. This gallery talk is sponsored by Museum Contemporaries. Media Sponsorship is provided by The Cleveland Freetimes.
