Skirball Exhibits

From now through August 9, the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, CA will be hosting two comic-related exhibits. First is the unfortunately titled "ZAP! POW! BAM! The Superhero: The Golden Age of Comic Books, 1938–1950" which "examines the creative processes and influences that drove young Jewish artists to express their talents through the storylines and art of comic books." The show features GA comics and original art from the period. Jerry Robinson is a guest curator. The companion exhibit, "Lights, Camera, Action: Comic Book Heroes of Film and Television", unsuprisingly looks at the cultural connections between comics and film/television. Included in the show are the Batcycle from the 1966 TV show and one of Christopher Reeve's Superman costumes.
