He Did Garbage Pail Kids?
You know Art Spiegelman. If you’re a comic book junkie (or “graphic novel enthusiast”) you know him. If you grew up in the 1980s, you know him. If you like to read high-falutin essays in The New Yorker, you know him. Speigelman’s work blasts boundaries between literature and art. Also, he co-created the Garbage Pail Kids. But the Pulitzer Prize-winning illustrator and writer is more than just a purveyor of snot jokes — he is frequently credited with taking graphic novels into the literary mainstream with Maus. Spiegelman harkens back to those comic book roots during his Artful Musings presentation 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Dallas Museum of Art, 1717 North Harwood St. Tickets are $15 to $35.
