Illustrating Spain in the U.S. 

Exhibit through March 10

Commissioned by the Cultural Office of the Embassy of Spain and curated by award-winning writer Ana Merino, Illustrating Spain in the US unites comic creators and scholars in a joint artistic effort to deepen into the Spanish presence in this country.
Comic artists and scholars help bring the United States closer to us to reflect on the legacy of Spain’s heritage over the centuries. Spain has been an essential seedbed in the substratum of American history and culture.
This project aims at taking a better look at seven potential sides of the inspiring Spanish presence resulting in comic books of very diverse inspiration.

Presented by the Cultural Office of the Embassy of Spain in Washington, D.C
