Graphic Medicine: Ill-Conceived & Well-Drawn! was a traveling banner exhibit that explored how the increasingly popular field of graphic medicine uses comics to tell personal stories of illness and health. The exhibit was on view at Central Library from May 21 to June 30, 2018
About the Exhibit
Curated by cartoon artist Ellen Forney, the six-banner traveling exhibit Graphic Medicine drew from important texts, newly acquired by the National Library of Medicine. The language of words and pictures gives approachability and emotional impact to personal stories, and even to the clinical data they sometimes include.
