Brooklyn, NY: Eleanor Davis Book Signing at Desert Island

March 7, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PST

  • This event has passed.

Join acclaimed cartoonist Eleanor Davis (How to Be Happy) for a presentation of her new book, Why Art?

What is “Art”? It’s widely accepted that art serves an important function in society. But the concept falls under such an absurdly large umbrella and can manifest in so many different ways. Art can be self indulgent, goofy, serious, altruistic, evil, or expressive, or any number of other things. But how can it truly make lasting, positive change? Davis unpacks some of these concepts in ways both critical and positive, in an attempt to illuminate the highest possible potential an artwork might hope to achieve.

Where: Desert Island Comics
