MA – Cartoon County: John Cullen Murphy + His Friends Signing

Cullen Murphy appears at the Norman Rockwell Museum on Saturday, December 9, 2017 at 2:00 PM.

Join Cullen Murphy for this fascinating look back at the art of his father, John Cullen Murphy, and the many illustrators and cartoonists who resided in southwestern Connecticut, “a bit of bohemia in the middle of those men in their gray flannel suits.” Cullen Murphy’s father, John Cullen Murphy, drew the popular comic strips Prince Valiant and Big Ben Bolt—at the heart of this artistic milieu, he even received training from Norman Rockwell. Comic strips and gag cartoons read by hundreds of millions were created in this tight-knit group—Superman, Beetle Bailey, Snuffy Smith, Rip Kirby, Hagar the Horrible, Hi and Lois, Nancy, Sam & Silo, Amy, The Wizard of Id, The Heart of Juliet Jones, Family Circus, Joe Palooka, and The Lockhorns. Illustrated with never-before-seen photographs, cartoons, and drawings, Cartoon County is sure to delight. A book signing will follow the program. Free for Museum members, or included with Museum admission. Children free to age 18.
