Location: North Wing Lobby
Ivan Velez Bronx-born Puerto Rican cartoonist and educator exhibits a series of drawings related to comics, as well as his activist work spanning his thirty-year career. From his groundbreaking work on LGBTQ youth issues during the AIDS crisis, to his subversive writing in mainstream comic book companies such as Milestone Media, DC Comics, and Marvel, in addition to his independent work for queer and multicultural publishing, Ivan Velez: Bronx Haiku offers an engaging survey of one artist’s desire to bring change and diversity into an art form that plays an indelible role in American popular culture.
